Characteristics of La Bicicleta Voladora

La Bicicleta Voladora is a red wine produced by Germán R. Blanco in San Adrián, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

The new adventure of Germán R. Blanco now in the Navarrese part of Rioja, which joins the already known Quinta Milú in Ribera del Duero, and Casa Aurora and San Esteban in El Bierzo.

Here, with his friend Javier Colio, he produces this young wine with Tempranillo and Viura, from winegrowers who cultivate vines that are between 20 and 50 years old. They have organic certification, and they are planted on very deep clayey-calcareous soils with a lot of stones on the surface layer.

 

La Bicicleta Voladora is vinified in a rented winery in San Adrián. Their aim is to produce a fluid wine, vertical and with no frills. They also use Viura, which gives their wines acidity and freshness.

The harvest is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once the grapes have been destemmed, they go through a pre-fermentation maceration, with soft pump-overs, for 4 days in cement tanks and Flextank "eggs". These two materials allow the microoxygenation of the wine without adding any external aromas to it. The wine ferments in these two kinds of deposits, and it is left to age for 7 months.  It is not filtered, but it does go through a very light clarification. Finally, it is stabilised thanks to the cold in winter.

 

La Bicicleta Voladora is a light, expressive and very aromatic wine. An honest wine that expresses all the character of the varieties and the terroir.

Tasting notes La Bicicleta Voladora

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.
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.
