September 1, 2021

Matarromera Crianza 2018 awarded 91 points by Wine Spectator
The Tempranillo grape used to produce Matarromera Crianza comes from several estates located in the towns of Olivares and Valbuena de Duero (both in Valladolid). These are La Aguilera, Tejares, Martinete or El Badén. These vineyards are very close to the Douro River and produce a high-quality Tempranillo grape that, year after year, brings its characteristic flavor to Matarromera Crianza.
