Tasting Notes

Concentrated aromas of candied black cherry, blackberry jam and dried herbs. The palate is medium plus in body, ripe, pure and balanced. There are black fruit flavors (blueberry, black cherry, blackberry and black caps), as well as minerality, and a refreshing acidity. 


Quinta Milú is young winemaker Germán R. Blanco's tiny operation in the small town of La Aguilera, in the province of Burgos. Blanco calls his estate a "micro winery" and eschews modern winemaking techniques and international varieties. From old Tempranillo vines, he makes wines aged in different types and sizes of casks and barrels.

La Bicicleta Voladora (The Flying Bicycle) is Germán Blanco's new project in Rioja Baja. With the help of an old friend and fellow oenologist, Javier Collio, Germán sources fruit from certified organic vineyards in the Navarra part of the appellation. The vineyards are dry-farmed and have an average age of thirty-five years old, grown in a mix of clay and limestone.  The wine is made in a cellar in San Adrian, following the Milú philosophy: "happy wines made from happy grapes" is how he defines it.

The grapes are de-stemmed and fermented at cold temperatures from native yeasts. A slight maceration before the end of fermentation helps to make a delicate and fresh wine; no oak is used, and the wine stays in concrete tanks for five to six months.
