Gran Reserva 2008
Controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks, employing de-stemmed grapes and cold maceration of the grapes. After fermentation, most of the wine undertakes malolactic fermentation in new oak barrels. Afterwards, it has been aged in America oak barrels for a minimum time of 30 months completing a further ageing period in bottle of 36 months.
Classic and elegant Rioja wine style. Very clean in the nose, dominated by concentrated fruit well integrated with oak, with aromas of soft ripe cherry, vanilla cream and buttered toast. Once in the mouth it is warm, well rounded, with sweet tannins and well balanced. It has a juicy redcurrants and blueberries taste and smooth spice. Nice expression and great persistence.
