Maceración Carbónica 2017

Rioja
  • 75cl bottle

This wine has great aromatic intensity with classic aromas of fresh strawberries, blackberries, wild berries and floral notes. On the palate there is marked sweet berry flavours with grippy tannins, leading to a long and fruity finish.

Vineyards

This wine is made from Tempranillo grapes from various plots in Rioja Alavesa.

Vintage

The 2017 vintage in Rioja Alavesa was marked by the effects of the April frost as well as drought conditions in summer. The region reported the earliest vintage in recent history but with excellent quality. Canopy management and general viticulture were fundamental in achieving these results.

Winemaking

Grapes were hand harvested and whole bunches were put into stainless steel tanks, where, at controlled temperatures, carbonic maceration took place. This is a traditional winemaking technique in Rioja Alavesa. This results in wines with marked character and personality: fresh and light bodied, fruity and flavourful.

Enjoy with:

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
  • Pizza/Pasta
  • Casseroles/Stews
  • Mild Creamy Cheeses
  • Mature Strong Cheeses
A great wine for tapas - particularly charcuterie.
