Viña Real Reserva 2012 3 x Magnums

Rioja
  • 3 x Magnums

Good intensity in the nose, where the spicy aromas of oak and vanilla are mixed with floral, red fruit, particularly blackberry. On the palate this is a warm wine, with good acidity and noble tannin. Its structured body will give a long life in proper storage conditions but also can improve and accompany good gastronomy.

Vineyards

Carefully selected vineyards in the Alavesa sub-region of Rioja.

Vintage

The 2012 harvest has been lower than other campaigns in the DOC Rioja due to the drought that has characterized this vintage. Yields were lower due to drought. In CVNE we started on September 20 and ended on October 23, making this a slow and selective harvest.

Winemaking

The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature with a long maceration according to tastings and daily analysis. After the malolactic fermentation takes place, the wine is then transferred to a mix of American and French oak casks to mature, for up to 22 months, before being bottled. Once bottled, it will remain in our cellars to continue its maturation prior to release to the market.
