Viña Real Reserva 2016
High and persistent aromatic intensity, highlighting forest fruits and liquorice the palate it presents itself as a structured wine, with body and vigorous tannins which indicate good ageing potential.
Carefully selected vineyards in the Alavesa sub-region of Rioja.
The 2016 harvest was characterised by good weather and increased production expectations after a cycle marked by drought and high summer temperatures. Overall, the weather favoured a satisfactory growing season with the absence of significant diseases or insects, and which lead to the grapes being in excellent health until the harvest was completed.
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.
