Characteristics of El Inquilino Crianza

El Inquilino Crianza is a red wine produced by the Bodegas Zorzal winery in D.O.Ca. Rioja.

Bodegas Zorzal was founded in 1989 with the aim of rescuing the indigenous varieties of the area, with the philosophy that wine is born in the vineyard.

They currently own 40 hectares located near the municipality of Fitero, where the gentle topography creates a small oasis between all the vineyards on the lower bank of the Ebro river, giving them an extra freshness. 25 of these hectares are planted with Grenache. The rest are planted with Graciano and Tempranillo, together with white varieties like the White Grenache.

El Inquilino is the new range of wines from the winery in La Rioja.

El Inquilino Crianza is a wine made with Tempranillo and Grenache from vineyards located in the Najerilla Valley, with an average age of 35 years.

The grapes are harvested by hand and selected. Once destemmed and pressed, they are fermented in 5,000 liter stainless steel vats with native yeasts. The malolactic fermentation and the subsequent aging for 12 months is carried out in two year old 225 liter French oak barrels .

Tasting notes El Inquilino 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.
El Inquilino Crianza 2014 is deep and elegant red wine with character. In this vintage its fine balance on the nose stands out, together with an excellent blend between the varietal aromas, ripe red fruit, light citrus notes and the aging aromas, toasted notes, nuts and spices. On the palate it is dry and mineral, with a medium body and a lingering and persistent finish.
