Characteristics of Honorio Rubio Macerado

Honorio Rubio Macerado is a white wine made in the D.O.C.a Rioja by Honorio Rubio in Cordovin, La Rioja. 

Honorio Rubio is a winery located in the subzone of the Rioja Alta. It owns 15 hectares of vineyards spread across the town of Cordovin. The main varieties are Tempranillo, Garnacha and Viura

Honorio Rubio Macerado is made with the Viura variety by means of macerating its skins. Through this maceration of the white grape's skins, it is possible to protect the must without having to add sulphur.

As a result, we have a more orange-coloured wine, with some tannins from the maceration of the skins. A very interesting white wine. 

Honorio Rubio has started making these limited productions to test ancestral production methods that have existed for many years.

Tasting notes Honorio Rubio Macerado

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.
