Viña Sastre

Viña Sastre is an iconic, family-run winery located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero, near Burgos in the town of La Horra, which is one of the most respected villages in the D.O. The village of La Horra is famous for making the powerful, distinctively structured reds from old vine tempranillo, grown near the Duero river.

Sastre’s wines are classic Ribera del Duero style: with one foot solidly planted in the tradition and vineyards of the region and the other firmly in world-class wine-making. These are big, powerful reds with lots of fruit, but they also have elevated freshness from their naturally high acidity and long, gently textured palates. Jesús Sastre performs a high-wire, tight-rope act with his wines, where the drinker can have everything in one wine, and at the end of it all one is left wondering how he is able to pack such an adventure into each bottle. He manages to achieve a level of sophistication and complexity unequalled by almost no other producer in Ribera del Duero.

  • Vina Sastre Roble 2018

    Vina Sastre Roble 2018

    In our opinion, the best Ribera del Duero Roble available. All the characteristics of a Roble from Ribera del Duero can be found in this bottle. 8 months aged in oak, 100% Tempranillo, it’s all there!

     

    Colour: Dark ruby red.

    Nose: Lots of flowers on the nose, particularly violets and lavender, and also some roasted coffee notes.

    Taste: Smooth with mellow tannins, this wine is savoury and lightly smoky. The finish is long and mineral with an iron quality.

  • Vina Sastre Crianza 2015

    Vina Sastre Crianza 2015

    A wonderful Crianza from Ribera del Duero, produced by Vina Sastre from La Horra, the heart of Ribera del Duero. 100% Tempranillo and aged 14 months in French and American oak barrels then bottle-aged for 10 months before release.

     

    Colour: “Picota” (cherry) red colour and ruby tones.

    Nose: Red fruit and cocoa. Try and get the chocolate.

    Taste: The 2015 Viña Sastre Crianza feels quite balsamic and oaky with a nice core of properly ripened fruit underneath. The palate is medium to full-bodied with some dusty, earthy tannins.
