Más de Leda
Bodegas Leda produces great multi-terroir wines made from the Tempranillo grape variety that is obtained from very old vines. The centennial vines grow in a range of unique terroir that stretch throughout the Duero Valley, giving this wine a unique and multidimensional sense of place. By carefully selecting the individual vineyard blocks each and every vintage, the Leda team ensures its followers that only the most expressive and naturally concentrated fruit will give life to this project year-after-year. With limited production of 80,000 bottles, Leda wines are expressive and harmonic. Containing roots that reflect the richness, strength and heterogeneity of its origin, Mas de Leda is in a class of its own.
Leda's winemaking is the sole responsibility of the García family who co-owns the winery along with Casa Masaveu Wineries. Eduardo Garcia, son of the prestigious winemaker Mariano Garcia, is the Technical Director of the winery.
WINEMAKER NOTES Due to the Garcias' long-standing relationships with many of Castilla y Leon's top viticulturalists, they are given the unique flexibility to select the best old-vine Tempranillo grown at a variety of elevations and in a multitude of different soil types. Made from a selection of extremely low-producing vines, the average yield of these ancient plants is close to 2,500 kg per hectare. Bottled after spending 15 months' aging in 90% French and 10% American oak, this wine is ready to drink now or lie down for up to 10-15 years.
TASTING NOTES Contains an expressive and perfumed nose, with abundant aromas of red fruit, sweet spice, black licorice and roasted coffee. Fresh and well-balanced on the palate, this wine has a smooth entry and round, gentle tannins that invite one to keep drinking. A fine, modern red wine from the Spanish Duero Valley, Mas de Leda is meant to be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods.
