Characteristics of Finca La Emperatriz Garnacha

Finca La Emperatriz Garnacha is a red wine from the appellation of origin (D.O.Ca.) Rioja produced by Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz (Finca La Emperatriz), in Baños de Rioja (La Rioja Alta).

This winery established in 1996 when the Hernaíz brothers acquired an estate of land during the 19th century which had been the property of Eugenia de Montijo, the wife of Napoléon III and the Empress of France.

Finca La Emperatriz Garncacha is a monovarietal of Garnacha. The grapes originate from the same estate, number 5, these are old vines reaching 65 years old, cultivated from sandy and stony soils.

The harvest is manually completed in small boxed normally on the 16-18th of October.

Once at the winery the grapes receive a Pellicular maceration process at 5ºC for one week. The grapes are transferred to open French oak barrels that can contain 500 litres with daily manual over pumping.

After the winemaking process, the wine is aged for 11 months on its lees in French oak barrels of 500 litres.

Alcohol: 14.0%
Serve at 16ºC
Pairing

Tasting notes Finca La Emperatriz Garnacha

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 Cherry colour, medium bodied. Very clean and bright. Nose Elegant and aromatic with a predominance of red fruit and sweet strawberries. Balsamic and mineral notes. Taste Very tasty and fresh, passing to a fruity and enveloping taste. Tannins are well integrated and good acidity. Long finish and persistent.
Sight Cherry red with a medium robe. Clean and very bright. Nose The elegance of the nose is noteworthy. Fresh, aromatic and fruity. Aromas that are characteristic of an elegant Garnacha shine through. These include red fruit, shrub and strawberry candy accompanied by nuances with a marked minerality. There is no over-ripeness. Freshness dominates. A creamy, spiced undertone. Complex and expressive. Taste Good volume on the palate and an easy mid-palate, with refreshing acidity that add tannins to the wine that do not make you dizzy. Long, with a fruity aftertaste. Elegant and balanced.
