Viña Real Crianza 2019
Aromatic intensity with forest fruits such as blackberries and wild cranberries intermingled with black liquorice, vanilla and nutmeg from time spent in oak. The perfect balance of tannin and acidity.
Wine made from grapes from the Rioja Alavesa area harvested by hand and processed in Vina Real.
The harvest at Vina Real began on September 23rd and ended on the 12th of October, slightly ahead of average due to low yields. The vineyard's vegetative state was very good in terms of health due to the good weather conditions throughout the entire cycle. Temperature fluctuations and light rainfull during flowering and verason caused a low rate of fruit set, which reducted the quantity of grapes, resulting in small, loose and not compact bunches. Overall a moderate harvest in terms of quanity, very healthy and of excellent quality.
Grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days with temperatures between 26-28°C. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is placed in American and French oak barrels for 13-14 months.
