Description

Established in the 1990s, Portia Prima is the debut release from the Portia Estate in Spain’s exciting Ribera del Duero region. It is the outcome of a venture begun some 15 years ago by the Martinez family, owners of Bodegas Faustino, a leading producer of wines from the Rioja. The name of the new property has a dual origin, both as a reference to the seventh satellite of the planet Uranus (representing the pioneer, inventor, creator and artist according to astrology), and the Latin word for a token offering made in ancient times as a symbol of gratitude toward the elements in return for a healthy and abundant harvest. Commissioned by the Martinez family, the project represents the first winery designed by internationally famed architect Norman Foster, head of the London-based design team, Foster + Partners. The property embraces 400 acres of terrain enjoying an eastern and southern orientation in Ribera del Duero. Vineyards are planted chiefly with Tempranillo (known locally as Tinta Fina) at an average density of 1,200 vines per acre. Bodegas Portia is the new star in Ribera de Duero.

This Portia Prima from 2007 is a 100% Tempranillo matured in French oak casks for about 15 months. It has a cherry red colour with aromas of ripe berries. The palate is spicy with a hint of toast, well balanced and structured and with hints of berries and oak.

This wine is a good companion of chorizo, bean stew, egg dishes, grilled mushrooms, tuna, red and grilled meat and medium hard cheeses.
