Characteristics of Sierra Cantabria El Bosque

El Bosque is a marvellous red wine made by Viñedos Sierra Cantabria winery in DO La Rioja. Viñedos Sierra Cantabria is a small winery owned by Bodega Sierra Cantabria, they also own other wineries in La Rioja like Señorío de San Vicente and Dominio de Eguren, and known Teso la Monja in D.O. Toro.

El Bosque is a single variety Tempranillo. The grapes are grown in Finca El Bosque, a small estate of 1,5 hectares that has old vines more than 40 years old in clayey-limestone soils with gravel and rocks on the surface.
The area is sheltered by Sierra Cantabria, and encounters a mixture of climates between Atlantic and Mediterranean with mild winters and summers and a great difference in temperatures between the day and the night, ideal condition for the ripening if the grapes.

Sierra Cantabria undergoes a completely respectful agriculture for the environment. They do not use any type of chemical fertiliser, only organic fertilisers every two years.

The harvest is done by hand and the grapes are transported to the winery in small crates that maintain the perfect conditions.
There is a double selection of the grapes. The first selection of the bunches from their own winery and a second selection when they arrive at the winery on a conveyor belt where there is only a selection of the best bunches.

El Bosque is made by a traditional method. The production begins with the pre-fermentative maceration at a cold temperature of 8ºC for 3 days.

The fermentation takes place in French oak vats at a controlled temperature of 28ºC with 2 grape treadings daily for the first 8 fermentation days and once daily during the remaining 5 days.

The aging is done for 18 months in new central European and French Bordeaux barrels, applying rackings every 4 months.

A great wine, complex and very expressive with a long life ahead.

Alcohol: 14.5%
Serve at 18ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Sierra Cantabria El Bosque

Sight Intense cherry red colour with maroon tones. Nose Rich in nuances. Mineral background with graphite from the vineyard's gravel-rich soils. Fruits, aromatic herbs, balsamic notes. Taste Very good structure on the palate. Nice tannins, well-polished by the wine's ageing. Velvety. Powerful but with great balance. Very persistent and fruity aftertaste with notes of minerals and spices.
Sight Intense and very lively picota cherry colour, with beetroot tones in the rim and intense violet reflections. Clean and bright, with abundant, dense, tinted tears staining the glass. Nose Intense and complex aromas of very expressive red and black fruit, at its optimum ripeness, juicy, fleshy and tasty, intermixed with fine toasted notes and a wide range of spices. Subtle animal and herbal notes, on a background filled with minerals and balsamic notes. Very interesting. Taste El Bosque 2010 shows powerful, broad, bulk, intense and serious attack. It is long, silky and enwrapping on the palate of elegant, direct and very well-integrated tannins. Very good acidity. Perfect balance and structure. Long and persistent finish.
