Characteristics of La Vicalanda Reserva

La Vicalanda Reserva is a red wine from the appellation of origin (D.O) La Rioja produced by the winery Bodegas Bilbaínas. The wine is a monovarietal from Tempranillo.
The grape originates from the best vineyards in the region, located only 2km away from the winery.

The soils from which La Vicalanda reserve is born from are calcareous and stony. The fields are low yielding but high in quality.

The vineyards are planted using sustainable agricultures practices.

At the moment of harvest, the grapes have reached an optimum stage of ripening and are then destemmed and pressed. La Vicalanda Reserva is macerated for 3 weeks at a temperature of 28ºC.

The wine is subsequently fermented (alcohol and malolactic) after which the must is racked to purify the lees and then enters the barrel.

La Vicalanda Reserva rests for 14 months in new Bordeaux oak French barrels from Allier. During the ageing process the wine is racked 3 times.

La Vicalanda Reserva, before being sold, the wine is aged for an additional 24 months in the bottle.

Bodegas Bilbaínas, is the oldest bottling company in La Rioja, it is owned by a group of different businesses: Viña Zaco, Viña Pomal and La Vicalanda.

Tasting notes La Vicalanda Reserva

La Vicalanda Reserva 2012 is a wine with a tertiary profile, that is, with aromas of its stay in the barrel that are still quite evident.  These are complemented with black fruits that will be refined in the bottle over time. A wine with a modern Rioja profile that will delight people who like concentrated wines.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
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 Clean and intense garnet red colour with purple and russet tones. Nose Clean and intense undertones. Notes of red fruit and liquorice which add to the typical touches that are found in wine aged in the barrel. Taste Wide and a good body. Long and tasty after taste.

The century-old Bodegas Bilbaínas were born with a French heart and were established with a Riojan spirit. Bodegas Bilbaínas is the oldest bottling firm in La Rioja. It is the winery with the largest surface area of underground caves ("calados") in the whole region (3,400 m2). It also has the most extensive area of vineyards in the municipality of Haro. Since the beginning, the winery has been defined by its deep knowledge of the territory and the care in the production of its single-vineyard wines. These are extremely identified with the plots where they came from, hence their names: in 1911 Viña Pomal was created; in 1921, Viña Zaco; in 1923, the white wine Viña Paceta; and the range was extended in 1994 with La Vicalanda reserva, a distinguished and expressive wine that was born from the 9-hectare farm, selected in the vineyard area of Viña Pomal.
