O. Fournier: Spain
This polished red ... has muscular tannins, but stays fresh and clean through the smoky finish.Wine Spectator
Alfa Spiga is O. Fournier’s flagship Spanish wine, spending 18+ months in new oak and a further year in bottle before release.
Bountiful notes of both red and dark berry fruits mix with coffee, liquorice and a touch of vanilla. The palate is medium bodied with intricately woven tannins, leading to a finish that is long and classic.
TIME IN OAK
Ribera del Duero
Grapes were hand picked into 18kg boxes before bunch selection back at the winery and fermentation in stainless steel tanks, with cold maceration (between 6-8°C) for seven days, followed by further maceration for 30 days. The wine was then aged for twenty months in French (90%) and American (10%) new oak barrels.
