Characteristics of Finca La Emperatriz Parcela numero 1

Finca La Emperatriz Parcela nº1 is a D.O.Ca. Rioja red wine produced by Viñedos Hermanos Hernáiz (Finca La Emperatriz). This winery produces two types of wine: one which blends varieties from different plots, and another with varieties from the same plot. In the case of Finca La Emperatriz Parcela nº1, grapes from a single plot of land (plot number 1) are selected.
This wine is a single varietal Tempranillo (100 percent). The master harvester selects grapes with low yields (with a maximum of four bunches per cordon). The grapes must pass an extremely stringent organoleptic analysis.
The grapes arrive at the sorting table twenty minutes after being cut. The leaves are discarded together with the imperfect grapes.
Later, they are stored in tanks of different sizes and materials (wood, stainless steel and barrels without heads) where they ferment and macerate. Finally, the wine ages for 18 months in new French oak fine grain barrels.
Serve at 17ºC
Contains sulphites

Tasting notes Finca La Emperatriz Parcela numero 1

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.
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.
Sight Raspberry red with a dark core and violet nuances. A very high robe. Bright. A dyed tear. Slow and dense. Nose An ensemble of fruity aromas on the palate with dark fruit, liquorice and milky notes. Extremely mineral and very complex. Taste Intense, concentrated and robust on the palate, with great volume and roundness. A grape aftertaste. Long and persistent. A perfect expression of its terroir.
