Wine Description

Áster wines mainly convey emotion. Faithful, sincere and wise mirrors of an exclusive vineyard. Consistent, elegant, well-armed and with a brilliant fruit. Typicity and full minerality in Finca El Otero, the first wine of the House from a particular plot.

Tasting Notes

Very deep, intense, dark cherry red, with a garnet rim. Clean. Penetrating nose with aromas of stewed dark fruit, hints of underbrush, aniseed and spices underscored by notes of buns, coffee beans, toffee, mocha and black liquorice.
Outstandingly wide structure in the mouth, with a good balance between acidity and alcohol content; mature and elegant tannins providing a powerful yet friendly mouthfeel. Big finish.
