Characteristics of Gómez Cruzado Crianza

Gómez Cruzado Crianza is a red wine produced by Gomez Cruzado in Haro, La Rioja, under the D.O.Q.a Rioja.

The winery was founded in 1886 in the famous station neighbourhood of Haro, where you will find the classic and most renowned wineries of the Rioja Alta. The winery’s vineyards are divided among three zones of the Rioja Alta, in the Sierra Cantabria, Nejerilla and Alto Najerilla, and all are cultivated using sustainable viticulture.

Gomez Cruzado Crianza is a blend of two different grape varieties: Tempranillo (80%), taken from the Sierra Cantabria and Garnacha (20%), taken from the heights of Najerilla. Pre-fermative maceration is carried out for 3 days in truncated cone shaped stainless steel tanks, with daily pump overs. The wine is then aged for 12 months in American oak barrels.

Gómez Cruzado Crianza is a red wine which seeks to show off the character of the fruit of the Garnacha, rather than the character of the wood.

Tasting notes Gómez Cruzado Crianza

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.
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.
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.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

Gómez Cruzado is now the ‘boutique winery’ of Barrio de la Estación in Haro. It is a century-old project that gathers the necessary ingredients to make wines of the highest quality. On the one hand, they preserve the classic style, as can be seen in the ‘vinos finos’ of Barrio de la Estación in Haro, but they also know how to value the land with the production of other wines linked to the landscape. Tense, with a bit more nervo, clean and honest.
