Characteristics of Altún Crianza

Altún Crianza is a red wine produced by Bodegas Altún, in Baños de Ebro, D.O.Ca Rioja.

 

Bodegas Altún is a winery founded in 1989, with the aim of making top-quality wines, respecting the traditional production methods without ceasing to apply the new winemaking technologies.

In 1994, José Antonio Martinez started to select vineyards to start producing their wines. They currently work in the Rioja Alavesa with 45 hectares of their own vines, which are an average of 40 years old. Clayey-calcareous soils and a moderate Atlantic climate thanks to the protection of the mountain range Sierra de Cantabria, mark the personality of these excellent wines.

 

Altún Crianza is a wine made from Tempranillo from their own vineyards. Grapes are harvested by hand and selected. Once the grapes are destemmed, they ferment in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature, with a maceration that lasts 8 to 10 days. The ageing is carried out in French and American oak barrels for 14 months.

 

Altún Crianza is a full-bodied, structured and harmonious wine. With elegant aromas of ripe black fruits and well-assembled wood. 

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tasting notes Altún Crianza

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
