UNIT: 1 x 75cl Bottle.
WINEMAKING: Intense ruby red, bright and deep in colour. Rich, deep aromas of bramble, red autumn fruit with a hint of balsamic and warm spices from fine oak. The palate is fine, complex and long, with balanced tannins and an excellent bright finish.
VINEYARDS: Selected vineyards in Rioja Alta.
VINTAGE: This vintage has been characterized by a delay in the development cycle of the grapes. After a spring with low temperatures and high rainfall and after a short summer, it was time to start vintage on September 30th with a pre-selection of grapes in the vineyards. Vintage ended on October 31st with a good expectation for the wines of this vintage.
WINEMAKING: The grapes were hand picked from selected vineyards and, following destalking, they were fermented at controlled temperatures between 28° C and 30° C.Following a full malolactic fermentation to balance the acidity, and add extra roundness and softness, the wine was matured for eighteen months in a mixture of French and American oak barrels, with rackings every six months. After bottling, the wine was cellared for a year before being released.
TASTING NOTES: Hallmark C.V.N.E. fruit shines through in this fine Reserva. Two years in American and French oak casks give greater complexity and smooth tannins along with enticing brambly and sweet spice aroma.
