Winemaking

The alcoholic fermentation of the grapes from our vineyards in Rioja Alta takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in tanks and then the wine is aged in American oak barrels for one year. During this time, the wine acquires the aromatic balance, finesse and expression that characterizes it.

 

Vintage / Harvest description

Harvest in 2016 merged as an excellent year determined by the lack of rains from May to October. The year started with a dry warm winter and a rainy spring in the beginning. August was slightly warmer than usual and, with no rains, the vegetative cycle was delayed. September arrived with few rains so it was a late but high-quality harvest. In CVNE, harvest started on the 19th of September and finished on the 31st of October.

 

Tasting notes

Medium intensity of maroon colour. In nose, we can find aromas of wild fruits, liquorice together with vanillas, toffees and cocoa from the American oak barrels. Soft entrance in the mouth with rounded tannins and a slightly acidic end which leads to a long and fruity aftertaste. This wine is easy to drink, fresh and perfect for pairing with every type of dishes of the Mediterranean diet.
