Characteristics of Hacienda Grimón Crianza

Hacienda Grimón Crianza is a red wine from Rioja, prepared by Hacienda Grimón, a winery located in the Valley of Jubera, in Rioja.

Hacienda Grimón Crianza is a blend of Tempranillo (85%), Grenache (10%) and Graciano (5%). These grapes come from vineyards grown at about 600 metres, with a low production and a high quality.

The cultivation follows organic methods, the vineyards are enriched with composted sheep manure and the use of herbicides for both mechanical and manual tillage is prohibited.

As for the production process, the first step in the creation of Hacienda Grimón Crianza is a rigorous harvest where the grapes are manually selected and a second manual selection occurs in the cellar.

Once selected, a stripping is done and grapes are crushed, the resulting must is poured into steel tanks of 15,000 litres.

This alcoholic fermentation, which lasts nine to twelve days, occurs at a controlled temperature not exceeding 29 ° C.

After vinification, the deposits are pressed using a vertical press. Finally, Hacienda Grimón Crianza is aged for 14 months in French oak (40%) and American oak (60%) barrels.

Finally Hacienda Grimón Crianza is ready to serve.

Tasting notes Hacienda Grimón 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.

Taste On the palate this wine is fresh, enjoyable and enveloping, marced by hints of red fruit and citrus.

2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight Live garnet with good depth and slightly open edges, with cherry red tones and sparkling ruby. Nose Powerful aroma dominated by a feeling of warm fruit and nuances of wood (mainly American) with hints of vanilla and cocoa that leave a sweet sensation at the end.
Taste Soft attack with fragile astringency and a lightly toasted flavour, with predominance of notes of ripe fruit. Warm and slightly balsamic finish with sweet notes.
Sight Live with good color maroon with shades of red and ruby hitching flashes. Nose Powerful aroma dominated by a warm feeling of fruit typical of a Mediterranean climate and nuances of wood with a sensation of vanilla and cocoa. Taste Entry with a soft and fragile astringency a slightly roasted taste is dominated by ripe fruit.
