The new edition of the ADN Verema Wine Guide has already announced the wines that have entered its select club. At Bodega Sierra Norte we have received an excellent score for three of our wines, which have entered directly into the exclusive group of outstanding wines for this guide.
Bercial Ladera Los Cantos, our best rated wine, with 93 points.
It is the king. We already knew it and now the Verema ADN Guide confirms it. Bercial Ladera Los Cantos is a wine of high expression, aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. The grapes with which we make it, of the Bobal and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties, come from the best plots of our old vineyards of more than 60 years old located in Camporrobles, at an altitude of 920 metres above sea level. It can be said that we choose cluster by cluster those that will be part of the elaboration of this great wine.
It is a wine with a beautiful garnet cherry colour and ruby rim. Its aromas are of red fruit, with a marked mineral character and fine toasted notes. With hints of cocoa and ripe fruit on a background of undergrowth. A complex and expressive wine. On the palate it is oily, round and full-bodied. Silky tannins within a pleasant structure, with great persistence and elegance.
A high level wine at a very competitive price, €15.65 (Deliveries only to the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands).
Pasión de Bobal, the favourite wine of winelovers, rated with 91 points.
Pasión de Bobal is a wine that continues to conquer hearts. It is our most awarded wine vintage after vintage and also one of the most purchased wines in our online spanish wine shop. It is a single varietal wine made with 100% Bobal grapes, from old vineyards over 60 years old and aged for 6 months in French oak barrels. A wood that suits it very well and that gives it just the right touch to tame the vigour of the Bobal grape.
The tasters of the Verema ADN Wine Guide were seduced by its vibrant aroma of red and black fruit with light touches of toast from the oak. A wine with good acidity, round, tasty and with great fruit presence. A ‘must’ that if you haven’t tried it yet, we recommend you do so as soon as possible.
If you are wondering where to buy Pasión de Bobal, you can do so in our online shop for only €9,10 (Deliveries only to the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands).
Equilibrio 9, our best representative of the Monastrell grape, scored with 90 points.
Monastrell is a grape that unfolds all its splendour in Jumilla. And that is where we have our vineyards and a small winery, because we are in love with this grape and its territory. This is where we make our Equilibrio family of wines, consisting of three reds and a white. The three reds are made with Monastrell grapes, and the most complex of all is Equilibrio 9, the wine that has obtained 90 points in the Verema ADN Guide.
Equilibrio 9 is made only with Monastrell grapes from old vines over 40 years old. It is a wine that we have had 9 months resting in oak barrels and it is delicious. One of those wines that practically makes you roll your eyes at the first sip. It has a beautiful cherry red colour with a bright reddish rim. On the nose it has a high intensity, with aromas of ripe red fruit combined with pleasant toasted notes from the barrel, spicy touches, hints of scrubland and wet stone. The palate is powerful, with ripe tannins, good length and fresh acidity. Full-bodied, frank and persistent, with a long finish.
Try Equilibrio 9, you can do it for only 8,45€ (Deliveries only to the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic Islands).
