Characteristics of Alenza Gran Reserva
Alenza Gran Reserva is a red wine produced by the winery Condado de Haza, in Roa (Burgos), within D.O. Ribera del Duero. Condado de Haza is one of the 4 wineries of Familia Fernández Rivera. The Condado de Haza winery has over 200 hectares of Tempranillo, all of them located in the town of Roa at over 800 metres of altitude. They are planted on loamy-sandy soils, with a continental climate and an annual rainfall of around 400 mm.
Alenza Gran Reserva is a red wine made with Tempranillo from a single plot, Viña Valera, located at around 800 metres of altitude on loamy-sandy soils.
Once the grapes are harvested manually, they are taken to the winery and stomped without destemming. Then, the grapes ferment in stainless steel deposits, where they also go through the maceration. After the fermentation, the wine spends 36 months in American oak barrels, and rests another 36 months in the bottle before going on the market.
Alenza Gran Reserva is a mature, structured and elegant wine. On the nose, the aromas of ripe black fruit stand out on a toasted and mineral background. In the mouth, it is intense, ample and very long. A wine with all the character of Ribera del Duero.
