Characteristics of El Tractorista

El Tractorista is a red wine from D.O.Ca. Rioja, produced by the winery Family Owned Wineries.

 

Family Owned Wineries is a project that was born in 2013 thanks to 2 families with a long winemaking tradition. On the one hand, the team of oenologists from Celler Tianna Negre, in Binissalem-Mallorca, and on the other, Bodegas Juan Gil, un Jumilla (Murcia).

Family Owned Wineries makes wines from different denominations of origin in Spain, with the local varieties of each area, to make wines that are loyal and representative of each region.

 

El Tractorista is a red wine produced with Grenache and Tempranillo, from old vines located on the hills of the Sierra Cantabria and Monte Yerga.

After the harvest, the wine ferments in stainless steel deposits, and once it has ended, it is aged for 5 months in oak barrels. Before it is launched on the market, the wine is left to stand in the bottle for a few months.

 

El Tractorista is a structured, fresh and easy to drink wine. A wine where the ripe red fruit plays the leading role, accompanied by the light toasted notes of the slight ageing.

Tasting notes El Tractorista

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.
