Bodegas Felix Callejo Flores De Callejo 2014
100% Tempranillo. This wine has really found its mojo in recent vintages and in 2014 it is right in the groove. Tiny, concentrated yields are one part of the reason, while a pre-ferment cold soak, natural ferment and mature wood élevage have all played their role in making recent vintages extra delicious and authentic. As per the entire Callejo range, the Flores fruit is hand harvested from organically-tended old bush vines (of 40+ years) rooted in the barren limestone-rich vineyards of the high Ribera (850-900 metres in altitude). In style, it remains unashamedly modern, with a silky core of juicy blackberry and blueberry fruit, some wood spice, focussed tannins and a streak of high-country vibrancy. It's an open-knit, perfumed Tempranillo that combines bistro and wine bar gluggability with the kind of balance and energy to complement more complex, intricate restaurant dishes.
