María del Yerro, co-founder of Ribera del Duero estate Alonso del Yerro swung by db towers this week for a tutored tasting of her wines. Having bought 26 hectares in Ribera in 2002, five years later del Yerro snapped up a further 9 hectares in Toro, where she makes a red from old vine Tinta de Toro.

Uncompromising on quality, del Yerro hired renowned soil consultants the Bourguignons to help map out her small plots and enlisted Stéphane Derenoncourt as a consultant. The result is terroir-driven Spanish wines with a French accent – the Riberas in particular, show restraint, black fruit a mineral backbone and violet aromas.
