Vina Real, Rioja Crianza Red

Viña Real is made from grapes grown in Rioja Alavesa where the people of the villages are dedicated almost totally to grape growing, this being a deep rooted tradition, passed down from generation to generation.

The grapes which make up Viña Real Crianza are sourced from our own vineyards in Laguardia and from our trusted providers in Rioja Alavesa who have supplied us for many years.

De-stemmed grapes were transferred to stainless steel vats for the alcoholic fermentation at temperature control between 26-28.  Following completion of the malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to French and American oak barrels where it aged for 13 to 14 months. During this period the wine is racked every 5-6 months to encourage ripening and proper organoleptic development.

Bright ruby-red. Cherry, redcurrant, tobacco and a hint of vanilla on the nose. Deep, sappy, open-knit red and dark berry flavors pick up floral pastille and smoke nuances with air. Finishes broad and smooth, with slow-mounting spiciness and gentle tannins. Quite elegant for the vintage and drinking nicely right now.
