Fray Martín de Vargas – Brandy
This weekend tasted Fray Martín de Vargas – Brandy, made by Destilerías Del Duero, winery of Matarromera Group in Ribera del Duero.
The monks of the Cistercian Monastery of Valbuena in San Bernardo, began the distillation of pomaces and the elaboration of liquors by the year 1143, using the same methods as we do today.
Destilerías Del Duero was born in San Bernardo (Valbuena de Duero, Valladolid) in the year 1998. Its location at this point is marked by the fact of being surrounded by the best wineries in the Ribera Del Duero, its easier to get the perfect access to the best POMACES of the area, which are our raw material.
Destilerías del Duero tried to do the same: combine the knowledge and the crafted elaboration with the most modern. technology.
Brandy Esdor of 36 months.
Clear and shiny with a soft amber color.
First feeling in the nose comes from the French oak which gives hints of green apple, toasted coffee and light leather.
After that we get tones of vanilla, cinnamon, coconut and red berries such as redcurrant, blueberry and wild berries.
It gives a mouthful sensation with a consistent but delicate backbone.
The finish is soft and pleasant. Fine wood, fruit, floral and mineral flavors can be found and it has a long back taste.
