Pagos de Viña Real 2016

Rioja
  • 75cl bottle

High aromatic intensity with traces of black fruits, blackberries and licorice well complemented with the aromas from its ageing process in French oak barrel such as spices, balsamics, toffees, cigars leaves and roasted coffee.

Vineyards

The grapes come entirely from our own vineyard plots around the new Viña Real winery between Laguardia and Logroño. The grapes are initially selected in the vineyard then again on the sorting table in the winery to provide the high quality fruit for this special wine.

Vintage

In 2016, harvest in Viña Real started the 5th October and finished 25th with excellent results both in terms of quality and quantity. After a growing season marked by the drought and the high temperatures during the summer, gentle rainfall arrived in September to help the ripening of the grapes.

Winemaking

The grapes are entirely from our own vineyard plots around the new ViñaReal Winery between Laguardiaand Logroño. Grapes are specifically selected firstly in the vineyard, followed by a table selection in the winery to give us the high quality fruit for this special wine. The grapes are only Tempranillo, brought to the winery in small plastic boxes, and fermented in small oak vats, to give us optimum control over the fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in small, new frenchoak 225 litrecasks, and it remains there 18 months more.
