About La Osa - Following ten years of experience tending to the vineyards her brothers planted and working in her family’s winery, Bodegas Tampesta, the very dynamic Noelia de Paz is realizing her independent La Osa mission: Produce expressive, small production wines from her native DO Tierra de León. Noelia carefully elaborates some of Spain’s mostly harshly ignored varieties, Prieto Picudo (Tinto) and Albarín (Blanco), in the Municipal of Valdevimbre in the southwest of León, within the Province of Castilla y León.

Trasto is 100% prieto picudo planted at 800-900 meters to clay and white stone soils. Hand harvested, hand sorted, and de-stemmed. Natural yeast fermentation in a 5,000 liter tank, maceration lasts for 20 days with daily pump-overs for minimal extraction. Then pressed into neutral barrels for four months. 10% of the previous year’s vintage is kept in barrel and blended back in for complexity and balance. Powerful yet fresh with good acidity and a very aromatic character. Bright, primary cherry and raspberry aromas with a hint of violet. and white pepper.
