GRAN RESALTE 2000 is rated as the best wine in Wine & Spirits Magazine 2009.

Bodegas Resalte de Peñafiel receives yet another outstanding score in the USA, with its Gran Resalte 2000. Wine & Spirits Magazine conducted a blind taste test on 135 new release Ribera del Duero wines, with Gran Resalte 2000 receiving the highest score of 94 points; however, the success has not only begun there. This past April, wine guru Thomas Mathews from the Wine Spectator also awarded Gran Resalte 2000 with 94 points, and has just gone on to be listed as one of Spain´s top wines in 2009. Only four wines from the D.O Ribera del Duero have achieved such an honor this year. This wine is of limited edition and represents Bodegas Resalte´s signature touch on the world acclaimed tempranillo grape.
Gran Resalte 2000 is made of 100% Tempranillo, and comes from single estate grown vines ranging from 60-80 years old. The grapes are subject to a highly selective 100% hand picked harvest. This gem is classified as a Wine Maker´s Signature Wine under the D.O. Ribera del Duero, with a long ageing of 32 months in highly selected new French oak barrels, with a minimum rest of 30 months in the bottle. This wine is highly evolved and is well to drink now through 2015.
