Characteristics of Honorio Rubio Crianza

Honorio Rubio Crianza is a red wine produced by the winery Honorio Rubio in Cordovín, D.O.Ca. La Rioja.

 

Honorio Rubio is a small family winery with more than 100 years of winemaking tradition. It is located in Cordovín, a village of Rioja Alta that is famous for its traditional pale rosé wine, clarete.

The winery has 15 hectares of its own vineyards and it manages approximately 50 hectares of the local winegrowing areas. Soils are varied. There are sandstones, clays and the common "cascajos" (gravelly soil), which are between 15 and 50 years old and located at 580-650 metres of altitude.

Honorio Rubio is a dynamic winery. They always have concerns, and are always searching for, trying and creating new oenological projects, with the aim of achieving their wines' excellence.

 

Honorio Rubio Crianza is a wine made from Tempranillo, Red Grenache, and Mazuelo, from the winery's own vines. Once the harvest has been performed, it is fermented in stainless steel deposits. It is macerated with its skins for the entire fermenting process. When it has concluded, it is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

 

Honorio Rubio crianza is a balanced, round and elegant wine. Aromas of ripe red fruits with toasted and tobacco notes. A Rioja classic.

Tasting notes Honorio Rubio Crianza

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.
