This tiny operation is run a young winemaking couple, Marta Ramas and Miguel Fisac, who work with a mere 12 hectares from which they make two wines. Mirum is 100% Tempranillo grown on 50-80 year old bush vines, vinified in separate parcels using indigenous yeasts. Maceration continues for 28 days in barrel before the free-run wine of each parcel passes into a selection of new barrels according to their potential for ageing - 90% French oak, 10% Hungarian oak, 6 different coopers. All vineyard sites lie at around the 900 meter altitude mark. "A rich and plush Ribera del Duero red, in which a big stack of tannins are beautifully integrated, giving it some real textural complexity that runs right through the complex, savory and mineral finish. Drink or hold." 94 points
