Telmo Rodriguez is a well known producer in Spain, with experience of vinification in many different wine regions. His interest in Douro got together with our search for different solutions of vinification for different “terroirs” and will to learn. The result was Omlet, a wine coming from vineyards with more than 60 years old planted higher than 500 meters and east facing, where maturation goes slower and gentler. The main varieties in these vineyards are Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz with a good amount of Sousão and Alicante de Bouschet. The main idea of this wine was always to express Telmo’s vision over the vinification, with less extraction in order to have a wine with no edges.

The grapes were manually harvested on September 17, and transported in 25kg boxes. During the reception at the winery, the grapes were carefully selected and sent by gravity into a stainless steel tank, where the alcoholic fermentation occured. The aging period as well as the malolactic fermentation took place in cask and 228 liter French oak barrels for a 22 months period. The wine was bottled in August 2012.

With a very concentrated ruby color, Omlet 2010 shows a complex and very noble aroma. Wild fruit notes, some leather and spices are fully integrated with the mineral character. Classic style with several layers, is very concentrated in the mouth, deep, with very silky and delicate tannins. Presenting a strong structure, is balanced by minerality, which is marked by the character of the old vines and good acidity. Complex, rich, and very long aftertaste. A wine of guard, that will benefit a lot from the stage in the bottle.
