Characteristics of Finca San Martín

Finca San Martín is a red wine from the Rioja region. It is produced by the Torre de Oña winery and it made using only Tempranillo grapes, the trademark grape of the region.

The grapes used to make this wine come from vineyards situated around the winery in Páganos-Laguardia, in the Alava province.

The grapes are then harvested manually and are transported to the winery in boxes, this is to ensure that the grapes arrive in the best condition possible.

The process of fermentation, alcoholic and malolactic, are carried out out in stainless steel tanks that have a capacity of 20,000kgs.

Finca San Martín then ages for 16months in new American oak (60%) and 2 year old French oak (40%) barrels. During this time, 3 rackings are performed.

The Torre de Oña winery was founded in 1985 by Leandro Vázquez, a buisnessman with a passion for viticulture. In 1995, the winery became part of the La Rioja Alta group, one of the largest wine producers in Spain

Tasting notes Finca San Martín

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.
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.
