Characteristics of Barón de Ley Varietales Garnacha

Barón de Ley Varietales Garnacha is a red wine from the D.O.C Rioja produced by the Barón de Ley winery (situated in Mendavia, Navarra). The winery was founded back in the 1980’s with the aim of producing classic style wines.

The winery is currently home to 400 hectares of vineyards situated across different zones of the D.O.C Rioja, with the different grape varieties adapting to the different microclimates of the DO, from the Alavesa to the Rioja Baja.

Barón de Ley Varietales Garnacha is made exclusively with the Garnacha grape variety, taken from vineyards in Ausejo in the Rioja Baja. The vineyards are situated at around 450 metres above sea level where the Garnacha grapes has perfectly adapted to the Mediterranean climate.

The winemaking process begins with fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 7 days at a controlled temperature of 25ºC, followed by post fermentiv maceration for 3 days. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in the same tanks for 15 days at a controlled temperature of 20º. The wine is then aged for 5 months in american oak, followed by another 6 months in (10,000litre) French oak fudres.

Barón de Ley Varietales Garnacha is a good example that Garnacha is perhaps one of the most representative varieties and how it is able to adapt to the mediterranean climate of the Rioja Baja.

Tasting notes Barón de Ley Varietales Garnacha

Barón de Ley Varietales Garnacha 2015 is a fresh, fluid and fruity red wine. An excellent vintage with a great balance between maturity and freshness. On the nose, the aromas of fresh red fruit stand out, with floral notes and a critical point. On the palate it is juicy and very lingering.
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.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

Barón de Ley is one of those Rioja wineries whose first wines were born with a true vocation for the future. There has probably never been a winery in the area of ​​La Rioja of the Navarre area that has been as controversial as Barón de Ley, where the modern character of its wines encountered the first renewed tastes. And Barón de Ley, after a few years producing test wines for another winery, was very clear as to what they wanted to be and what they wanted to do: a winery with a châteaux philosophy, with its own vineyards and a limited production, based on the concept of making single-vineyard wines, modern, in the Bordeaux style but with Rioja class.
