The Osborne – Osborne family have connections with the wine trade as far back as 1772. The company has privately owned estates in several quality Denominations of Origin in Spain including Ribera Del Duero, Rueda, Toro, Priorat, Cava – Penedes and Rioja. The company’s philosophy is a continuous study of the vineyards and their soil. The estates’ terrains are divided and the wines obtained are selected and treated individually at all times both during the production and ageing processes. They ensure that the result of this whole process is a unique reflection of the personality of the vineyards. This is how Viñedos Iberian was created with the aim of producing wines that accurately reflect the terrain and estate from where they originate.
The grapes were obtained from vineyards of the Rioja town of Fuenmayor. After selecting them and its preparation proceeded to give them a new barrel aging and second year French oak for 1 – 2 months. The nose has aromas of fruits from the forest with soft spicy notes of its time in oak. The palate is wide and balanced with a palate full of ripe red fruit and an elegant aftertaste reminiscent of cherry liqueur cream.
