Wine tasting notes

A smooth and elegant Crianza from our new star Rioja producer, which deftly balances fruit and oak. This is Sierra Cantabria's most admired wine due to its incredible value and delicate but complex style. Ripe cherry and red fruit, hints of spice and smoke, and a dusting of cocoa combine to form an elegant, complex Rioja with layers of oak and fruit.

Vinification Notes

Grapes are traditionally destemmed and fermentation is temperature-controlled between 26 and 28ºC with indigenous yeast selected from their own vineyards. Extended maceration on the skins for 24 days, starting with two daily pump-overs and then a light pump-over daily during the last ten days. The wine ages for 14.5 months in Bordeaux barrels of French and American oak.
