OPUS ONE, 2015

6.755,00kn

Početne tamne arome voća, začina i pečenja u Opus One 2015 isprepletene su zavodljivim notama ljubičice, crnog čaja i kadulje. Ulaz je živahan sa zrelim tamnim voćnim okusima šljive, kupine i borovnice praćenim notama vanilije i kakaa. Svilenkasti, sitno-zrnati tanini daju strukturu i kremastu teksturu. Vino završava svježom kiselinom i bogatim, dugotrajnim završetkom koji obećava dugovječnost u podrumu.

Initial dark fruit, spice and baking aromas in the Opus One 2015 are interwoven with seductive notes of violet, black tea, and sage. The entry is vibrant with ripe dark fruit flavors of plum, blackberry and blueberry followed by hints of vanilla and cocoa. Silky, fine-grained tannins provide structure and a creamy texture. The wine finishes with fresh acidity and a rich, lingering finish that promises longevity in the cellar.

O VINARIJI / ABOUT THE WINERY

O VINARIJI / ABOUT THE WINERY

Opus One jedno je od najpoznatijih svjetskih vina, a partnerstvo je dviju najuglednijih osoba iz Bordeauxa i Napa doline , baruna Philippea de Rothschilda iz Château Mouton Rothschilda i Roberta Mondavija . Bilo je to prvo vrhunsko kalifornijsko vino prodano u Europi i jedno je od izvornih “kultnih kaberneta”, zajedno s Harlan Estateom i Screaming Eagleom . I dalje je jedno od najskupljih vina s dominantnim Cabernet Sauvignonom proizvedenih u dolini Napa.

Suradnja je začeta 1970 -ih, a zatim prvi put realizirana 1979. godine, kada je nastala prva berba Opusa One. Objavljeno je javnosti 1984. godine, ali je već privuklo pozornost jer se jedan slučaj vina prodao za 24.000 dolara na prvoj aukciji vina u dolini Napa 1981. Marka Opus One znatno je porasla u devedesetima, osobito na tržištima izvan Sjedinjenim Državama, a 2005. godine, kada je vinariju Robert Mondavi kupila Constellation Brands, Opus One je također postao dijelom u vlasništvu multinacionalne tvrtke.

Opus One jedno je vino, bordoška mješavina dobivena iz vinograda imanja u Oakvilleu , koji uključuju blokove poznatog vinograda To Kalon. Grožđe se bere ručno, a gravitacijski tok koristi se za unos voća iz destemmera u spremnike od nehrđajućeg čelika radi fermentacije. Vino tada odležava u novom francuskom hrastu godinu i pol, tijekom čega dolazi do miješanja. Nakon dodatnih godinu i pol u bocama, Opus One izlazi na tržište. Iako se prvenstveno radi o Cabernet Sauvignonu, Opus One u manjim postocima koristi Merlot , Cabernet Franc , Petit Verdot i Malbec .

Od 1993., slijedeći Bordeauxovu tradiciju drugog vina, Opus One je počeo izrađivati ​​etiketu drugog reda, poznatu kao Overture. Ovo je napravljeno od voća koje ne čini rez za vodeću ponudu.

 

 

Opus One is one of the world’s most famous wines, and is a partnership of two of the most respected figures from Bordeaux and Napa Valley, Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi. It was the first premium California wine sold in Europe, and is one of the original “Cult Cabernets”, along with the likes of Harlan Estate and Screaming Eagle. It continues to be one of the most expensive Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wines produced in Napa Valley.

The collaboration was conceived in the 1970s and then first realised in 1979, when the first vintage of Opus One was created. It was released to the public in 1984, but had already attracted attention, as a single case of the wine had sold for $24,000 at the first Napa Valley Wine Auction in 1981. Opus One’s brand grew considerably in the 1990s, particularly in markets outside of the United States, and in 2005, when Robert Mondavi Winery was acquired by Constellation Brands, Opus One also became part-owned by the multi-national company.

Opus One is a single wine, a Bordeaux Blend sourced from the estate vineyards in Oakville, which include blocks of the famous To Kalon vineyard. The grapes are hand-harvested, and gravity flow is used to get the fruit from the destemmer into stainless steel tanks for fermentation. The wine is then aged in new French oak for a year and a half, during which time blending takes place. After an additional year and a half in bottle, Opus One is released to the market. Although it is primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Opus One makes use of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec in smaller percentages.

From 1993, following Bordeaux’s tradition of second wines, Opus One began to make a second tier label, known as Overture. This is made from the fruit that does not make the cut for the flagship offering.
