Characteristics of Bozeto de Exopto

Bozeto de Exopto is a D.O. Rioja red wine by Bodegas Exopto.
This wine is a coupage of Garnacha (50%), Tempranillo (30%), and Graciano (20%) varieties. The grapes come from vines that are 50 years old on average. The harvest takes place manually in 12 kg boxes. The grapes ferment in concrete tanks at a low temperature. The wine macerates for 15 days and ages for six months in concrete and oak tanks.

The goal is to marry freshness and the fruit aromas of the young wine with the wood nuances. This is achieved in a simply delicious manner.

Tasting notes Bozeto de Exopto

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
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.
Sight An intense red. A rich and bright appearance. Nose Red fruit (cherry and strawberry) aromas with mineral and floral notes. Taste Strawberry and cranberry hints on the palate. These flavours give it a sweetness that contrasts with the pleasant acidity. Elegant and fruity with a long finish.
Sight Nice intense and deep maroon colour, with bluish edges. Clean and bright. Nose Very expressive nose in which the intense juicy red fruit aromas stand out along with some mineral and floral touches. Taste The fruity aromas are stronger in this new vintage. They are perfectly balanced with a great acidity and its well integrated tannins are a connecting thread to achieve a harmonious fresh and suggestive red wine.
Sight Intense cherry-maroon colour with violet edges and a bright robe. Nose On first nosing, aromas of red fruits appear (cherries, plums, raspberries) which give way to the toasted and vanilla notes provided by the wood and some suggestive spicy hints. Taste A wine with a mellow attack in which the notes of fruit are released with a great intensity. Good acidity and structure. Lingering finish. A balanced, warm and harmonious wine which inviting to a second glass.
