Product Description

“No 2011 has been bottled yet, so I tasted the 2010 Crianza from hand-harvested grapes from Rioja Alavesa and produced in the Vina Real winery. As with the Reserva, the Crianza is usually a blend of 90% Tempranillo complemente with a small amount of Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano. 2010 has textbook climatic conditions to be a great vintage. The destemmed grapes carry out both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats and the wine ages for some 14 months in French and American oak barrels. The 2010 has a nice bright cherry color with a clean and open nose displaying red fruits, with a spicy touch, coming through as quite a traditional nose and a polished palate with good acicity as they aim for freshness and drinkability. This Crianza represents superb value for the money.” Wine Advocate (Luis Gutierrez) 91 points.
