Characteristics of Beronia Crianza

Beronia Crianza is a red wine from D.O. Rioja produced by Bodegas Beronia.
This winery belongs to the group González Byass and is located in the municipality of Ollauri, in the heart of La Rioja Alta.
With its name, Bodegas Beronia pays a tribute to the ancient past of the lands of Rioja and its first known settlers, the Berones, Celtic warrior people who inhabited these lands during the 3rd century B.C.
Beronia Crianza belongs to the range of classic wines of the winery. It is made mainly from the variety Tempranillo and small percentages of the varieties Grenache and Mazuelo.
The grapes come from 20 hectares of their own vineyards, which surround the winery. The soils where the vineyards are planted are predominantly clayey-calcareous.
In its production, a slow fermentation is carried out at a controlled temperature, with periodic pump overs that enhance the extraction of the colour and the aromas.
After the fermentation, the wine spends 12 months in deposits and another 12 months in mixed barrels with American oak staves and French oak bottoms.
Finally, before it is launched on the market, Beronia Crianza rests in the bottle for 3 more months to finish its refining.
Serve at 16ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Beronia Crianza

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca 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.
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.
Sight Cherry picota red in colour. Clean and bright appearance.
Nose On the nose it is attractive. Clear prominence of red fruits like cherry and raspberries accompanied by mineral notes and herbaceous aromas. Taste On the palate it is balanced and sweet. The fruit and liquorice stands out with a background of chocolate and coffee. A persistent finish.
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 Light cherry red colour with purple edges. Clean and bright. Thin tears. Nose Very good intensity with dominance of wild fruit along with good toasted notes, liquorice and a good and intense background of sweet spices (vanilla and cinnamon). When it opens up, nice balsamic touches are felt. Taste Good wine with a very friendly and nice attack. Silky, very tasty and fresh mid palate with well-balanced notes of fruit and vanilla. Polished tannins. Good finish which leaves good toasted and spicy notes. An easy-drinking wine.
Sight Ruby red with medium-high intensity. Clean and bright. Fine legs that dye the glass. Nose Aromas of wild berries (blackberries, raspberries and cherries) on a background of vanilla. Hints of toast, licorice and green spices. Taste Friendly and easy to drink Rioja wine. Good structure and good balance between its aromas of fruit and wood. Soft tannins. Aftertaste of roasted coffee, spices and licorice. A fresh and pleasant wine.
Sight wild cherry color with purple edging. Nose Without being very intense, it is nice, ripe red fruit, toast and some spices. Taste In the mouth is not very powerful but it is pleasant to drink, fresh, very soft tannins, easy to drink. Not very long but enough.
