Characteristics of Allende Aurus

Allende Aurus is a red wine produced by Finca Allende in Briones, D.O.Ca. La Rioja.

 

In 1986 Miguel Ángel de Gregorio discovers, in Briones, a unique terroir that he fell in love with. This is when he started to buy small vineyard areas with old vines. However, it was not until 1995 when he created his first Allende vintage. From this moment, he focused all his efforts on showing the character and the expressiveness of the terroir in his wines, on extracting all the essence of each one of his vines. He uses environmentally sustainable cultivation and follows the natural cycles of the plant, with organic fertiliser and mechanical tilling, without using any herbicides.

 

Allende Aurus is a wine made from Tempranillo and Graciano from their own vineyards located in Briones. They are over 60 years old, at around 500 metres of altitude, facing north. They are planted on clay loam soils with plenty of gravel and stones.

Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery. Once the grapes have been destemmed, and without crushing, they are vatted in French oak barrel. Here, they go through the cold pre-fermentation maceration for 6 days at 5ºC. After this, they ferment at a controlled temperature, 28ºC, for 16 days, carrying out three pump-overs every day. The full maceration with the skins is of 22 days. Devatting is through gravity and the pressing is performed vertically. The malolactic fermentation takes place in new Bordeaux barrels made of French oak, where it is aged for 24 months with racking every 4 months. This wine is bottled without clarifying or filtering.

 

Allende Aurus is a mature, powerful and elegant wine. With a great aromatic complexity, the aromas of very ripe black fruit stand out, with notes of liquorice, spices and elegant notes from the roasting. In the mouth, long and persistent. It is a fantastic aged wine.

Tasting notes Allende Aurus

An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight Dark red colour with a terracotta rim. Maintains a medium-high robe, showing that this wine has been well-made and that the grapes have been been well ripened on the vines. Nose After being aired for a good while, this wine is strong and complex. Aromas of stewed fruit and liquer. Balsamic, vegetal notes of undergrowth. Taste This wine is silky and broad for its age. Very tasty. Full of spicy aromas and notes of toast, caramel, coffee and cocoa. Very good development. The best time to taste it.
