Finca Museum

Castilla y León, castilla y leon Spain

Finca Museum is based in Cigales, a small DO located in Castilla y León, east of Valladolid. Although the area was once known for its dry rosados, a result of co-fermenting field blends of red and white varieties, it is the Tinta del País, a thicker-skinned Tempranillo, that excels today. As the name suggests, the winery is also a museum, with sculpture and paintings dating back to the 17th century.

The continental climate of Cigales (with temperatures reaching 40°C in the summer, even at 700 metres above sea level) and the soils poor in organic matter combine to ensure low yields and great wines. The vines are on average 40 years old and one of the reasons they have survived is because the soils are too poor to grow other crops such as cereal. Finca Museum own 198 hectares of vineyards with a further 100 hectares of old bush vines that they buy from growers on long-term contracts. All the vineyards are hand harvested with great care into small crates no higher than 90cm so as not to crush the grapes before they arrive at the winery.

The Crianza is aged for 15 months in American and French oak, resulting in expressive fruit driven aromas with supporting layers of vanilla and mocha. The Reserva spends 22 months ageing in French barrels, plus a further 15 months in bottle. Very deep in colour, the wine is rich and complex with flavours of blackcurrant, liquorice and roasted hazelnuts.
