Arrocal Selección



Tasting Notes

The 2011 Arrocal Seleccion is pure Tempranillo with ripe, minty aromas. It is quite showy and attractive with balsamic notes of cola nut, quite marked by the oak. It has enough intensity of fruit to keep the oak in the background, both in nose and palate. The tannins are polished and plump, and there seems to be enough acidity. It feels remarkably fresh for a warm vintage like 2011.

About the Winery


Gumiel de Mercado, in a wonderful setting in Ribera del Duero, has always been a town with a wine-growing tradition. Its structure is medieval and in the town center there is a hill where our ancestors dug underground cellars to keep their wines. This project began in 1999 when we took over the family vineyard and planted new plots. In 2003 we built the winery and began making our wines. The result of this project, with all its work, effort and excitement, has been ARROCAL – our passion.
