Characteristics of Ganko

Ganko is a red wine from the D.0 Rioja produced by the winery Olivier Riviere.

Tasting notes Ganko

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.
Ganko 2016 is a deep, complex and fresh red wine. An excellent vintage for this red wine that is balanced on the nose, with marked aromas of ripe red fruit with spicy notes and toast from its ageing. In the mouth, it is silky, round and very long.
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.
Sight Cherry red full bodied, with garnet reflections. Nose Good aromatic intensity with a predominance of red fruit mixed with balsamic and toasted notes. Taste On the palate it is tasty and pleasant. Passing is wide and enveloping, with sensations of red fruit combined with mineral tones. Persistent finish.
Sight Cherry red middle layer and garnet rim. Nose Fruity notes, raspberry and blackberry. Hints of violets on balsamic and earthy background. Aromas of aging. Taste Tasty and fruity. Medium bodied and friendly. It has good acidity and has a good ending: large and persistent. Distinctly mineral taste.
Sight A picota cherry colour, medium-robe. Nose Complex aromas of redcurrents and blackberries which intermingle with spices. Taste Smooth and velvety on the palate. Its ripe tannins and aromas of red fruit flood into the retro-olfaction. As well as the fruit aromas of tobacco, truffle and resin are noticed.
