Sarah Jane Evans MW chaired the final masterclass of the day, "The evolution of Ribera del Duero", at Decanter's Spain and Portugal Encounter on 27th February. Here are her top five wines from the class.

Ribera del Duero D.O. is famous for its Tinto Fino, also known as Tempranillo, wines. Those who attended ‘The evolution of Ribera del Duero‘ masterclass at last Saturday’s Spain and Portugal Fine Wine Encounter were treated to a stellar selection of wines.

Sarah Jane Evans MW chaired the class and has chosen her top five wines from the session, ranging from a 20-year-old Reserva from Alejandro Fernández to a more recent 2005 Aalto PS.

All five wines are 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo), and show different expressions of terroir in Ribera del Duero, as well as the changing trends in wine-making over the last two decades.

Sarah Jane Evans MW is the DWWA Regional co-Chair for Spain and Portugal.
