Characteristics of Finca La Reñana

Finca la Reñana is a white wine from D.O la Rioja produced by Bodegas Luis Alegre. This is a blend of the varieties Viura (90%) and Malvasía (10%).

The grape for Bodegas Luis Alegre originates from one vineyard owned by the winery at 650 meters above sea level, on the slopes of Sierra Cantabria.

The harvest is completed by hand and the grape production is around 2,500kg/ha. The average age of the vines are 85 years old.

Two selections processes: in the field and in the winery. There is a process called debourbage which lasts for 24 hours in stainless steel containers.

After the fermentation process in the barrel, Finca la Reñana rests for 6 months in new French oak barrels from the Troncais woods, near Paris.

Finca la Reñana is a high quality wine, that is was named by Parker as the best oak fermented wine in the world.

Bodegas Luis Alegre is a family winery established in 1968 located in Laguardia, in the heart of La Rioja Alavesa. The winery is open to visitors and has a famous restaurant.

Tasting notes Finca La Reñana

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
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.
Sight Straw yellow with greenish hues. Clean and shiny. Nose Citric note and sweet touches combined with vanilla undertones on a patisserie base. Taste Elegant and fresh, balanced to perfection between the acidic and fruity notes. Fine roasted tones and a long finish.
Sight Straw colour with greenish hues. Bright and neat. Nose Sweet citrus aromas with hints of ripe yellow fruit and vanilla tones. A base of soft and fine pastries and toast. Taste Elegant and fresh. The fruit and acidity find a perfect balance. The aftertaste with toasted notes, is long.
Sight Nice straw yellow colour with greenish reflections and waxy edges. Clean and very bright. Nose Medium-high intensity nasal aromas. Before swirling the glass, citrus aromas stand out along with sweet nuances of ripe yellow fruit mixed with hints of vanilla. Once aerated, nuances of tropical fruit (pineapple, peach and apricot) are released on a background of patisserie aromas and refined, elegant toasted nuances. Taste On the palate this wine is elegant, fresh and unctuous. Great balance between the fruit, the acidity and the alcohol. A round wine. The great contribution of the lees is noticed. Long aftertaste marked by refined toasted notes.
