General informationGrape selected from old vines of the “Cuesta la Reina” payment on the southern slope of Monte Yerga, on a Caracosol slope that begins at 450 m and rises to 800 meters. Its soils are poor and stony calcareous clay. It is a farm of more than 120 hectares that has belonged to the Escudero family for 4 generations, and in which the vineyard has always been cultivated. The productions per hectare are very low. The Tempranillo variety is harvested in the first week of October, in the third week the Garnacha harvest is made, followed by the Graciano, to finish in the first week of November with the Mazuelo variety. The grapes are harvested by hand, selecting the grapes, transporting them to the winery in boxes. The fermentation was carried out with native yeasts and it was macerating for 34 days, breaking the hat daily. Then it went to the barrel where it made malolactic fermentation. It remained in the barrel for 17 months and was bottled after a light filtration.

The grapes come from the “Cuesta la Reina” estate owned by the winery with 80-year-old vineyards. The manual harvest was carried out in the month of October. No pumping system was used in the process, only gravity so as not to damage the fruit. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts from the vineyard itself, controlling the temperature. The total duration of the maceration was 32 days. Once uncubated, in December, the wine went to French Allier oak and Romanian oak barrels where it was racked 5 times.
It was bottled in June (2 years later), remaining in the bottle for 12 months before being put on sale. With the word Vidau our ancestors called those farms with vines of different varieties. One word, a concept that Bodegas Escudero updates from the past and projects into the future. From the best selection of the most mature grapes from these old vineyards, a grateful and sincere wine emerges, very complex and very natural. A wine that sinks into the roots of tradition and evokes in time the memory of everything that lasts.
Tasting Notes Vidau red
Very covered cherry red color. Intense aromas with notes of ripe fruits, spices, balsamic and well assembled wood. Meaty and tasty on the palate, well balanced, and tannic. Long finish full of nuances with a predominance of ripe fruit and notes of aging.[caption id = "attachment_17359" align = "aligncenter" width = "1984"] you dig squire [/ caption] [caption id = "attachment_17360" align = "aligncenter" width = "1400"] cavas benito escudero barrel room [/ caption]
