Characteristics of El Buscador

El Buscador is a red wine from Rioja, produced by the Finca de la Rica winery. The winery is located in Labastida, south of the province of Alava.

The blend is made primarily from the Tempranillo, from the westernmost region of La Rioja, and Garnacha, a centenarian grape.

The Tempranillo grapes come from old vines planted 40 years ago at 585m of altitude, on clay-limestone soils.

The vines are planted on south-facing glass slopes.

For processing, 75% of the grapes are de-stemmed and 25% undergo carbonic maceration. Then the wine is fermented in stainless steel. The malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak Bordeaux barrels.

Alcohol: 13.5ºC
Serve at 15ºC

Tasting notes El Buscador

Sight Cherry red high layer. Nose Good aromatic intensity. Predominance of ripe red fruit with sweet and roasted notes. Taste Fresh, fruity and fleshy. Good acidity, well-integrated tannins. Lingering finish.
Sight Bright colour, cherry tones with a violet rim. Nose Medium-high intensity. Aromas of cocoa, liquorice, green pepper and bitter chocolate form part of the variety of sensations this wine has to offer. Taste Fleshy, fresh and above all, fruity, with a rich and balanced acidity.
Sight Bright cherry colour with violet edges. A wine with a high layer and good tears. Nose Its seductive aromas emerge slowly, gently. Its notes of red fruit are wrapped in aromas of chocolate, diverse spices (vanilla, pepper, ...), liquorice and fragrant flowers. An elegant toasted finish rounds out this aromatic and creamy set. Taste Wine with a good attack and a nice and fruity mid palate full of delicious notes of juicy fruit. It shows a good acidity and polished tannins. Good finish with enough persistence and a slight bitterness that disappears progressively.
