Characteristics of Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva

Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva is a Reserva red wine made with the Garnacha Tinta, Graciano and Tempranillo varieties by the Castillo de Sajazarra winery in the D.O.Ca. Rioja.

Castillo de Sajazarra was set up in 1973 by Alfonso Lebanon, who rebuilt an old castle acquired by his family in the 60s and found centuries-old winemaking parts. Located in Sajazarra, one of the highest areas of Rioja Alvavesa, it is an authentic “chateau” in the middle of La Rioja, which has a total of 49 hectares of vineyards around it. In 2006, they expanded the company by acquiring 25 hectares in Bell-Lloc (Barcelona) with the intention of producing wines from the D.O. Alella.

Located at an altitude of between 540 and 680 metres, the Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva vineyards enjoy the most significant Atlantic influence in La Rioja. With very poor, clay-calcareous soils, each plot is harvested separately when the low-yield grapes are very ripe.

The grapes from each plot are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks at a maximum temperature of 26ºC.  Between 10 and 20% of the total wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels with periodic battonage. Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva ages for 24 months in new and semi-new French and American oak barrels. Then it is refined for a minimum of 12 months.

Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva is a Reserva red wine that keeps all the typicality of the territory but holds the wood in the background.

Tasting notes Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva

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.
Castillo de Sajazarra Reserva 2014 is a mature red wine with complex aromas of flowers, ripe black fruit and spicy and balsamic notes. On the palate it is balanced, unctuous and lingering.
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.
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 Cherry colour with violet trims. Intense and bright. Good tears.
Nose Intense and complex aromas. The aromas of wood stay in the background, very well integrated with the notes of ripe fruit.
Spicy and creamy notes provided by the oak.
Taste Meaty and powerful wine. Very tasty mid palate with hints of toast. Noble and powerful tannins. Long and very persistent wine.
Sight Very attractive color cover, with red pillorying purplish reflexes. Nose Very intense and full flavor, with aromas of integrated wood snuff, balsamic, spicy which reflects its passage through wood. Taste Unctuous in the mouth, with solid structure, ripe tannins and slightly drying. Harmonious and long.

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

    As in all European countries, many Spanish wines owe their reputation to the efforts of some traditional families and some large companies that have kept two basic requirements: quality and personality. This family companies have managed to gather their own heritage that allows them to make wine “at home” with quality assurance. An example of this is the winery Castillo de Sajazarra. Since its beginnings in the early 70s of the last century, it has made wines with their own seal, and with the inimitable style of La Rioja Alta.
