Characteristics of Las Viñas de Eusebio

Las Viñas de Eusebio is a red wine, D.O.Ca. Rioja produced by Olivier Riviere.

Olivier Riviere is a renowned French oenologist who came to Logroño to work with Telmo Rodríguez in his La Rioja project. He already had a long career, studying in Bordeaux and working in wineries in the area. He then went to Burgundy to work with Domaine Leroy, one of the most important wineries in the region cultivating biodynamically.

Until 2012 Olivier Riviere purchased all the grapes from winegrowers in the area. In this same year he acquired two small plots in Rioja Alavesa, located at an altitude of around 500 meters. 1.5 hectares, planted with vines that are over 90 years old.

Olivier Riviere currently produces La Rioja, Navarra and Arlanza wines, managing to convey, all the features of the terroir honestly, with al the expression and authenticity of the variety.

Las Viñas de Eusebio is a wine made with Tempranillo from three of the winery’s own 15 year old vineyards located in Laguardia, at an altitude of 700 meters, on chalky and sandstone soils.

Harvesting is carried out by hand, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once de-stemmed, the grapes are fermented in open concrete tanks with native yeasts. The aging is 14 months in fudres and 7 months in tanks. It is bottled after a very delicate filtering.

Las Viñas de Eusebio is a juicy wine that is expressive and fresh. It stands out for the aromas of ripe red fruit and wild berries, with a balsamic base note. On the palate it is balanced and light.

Tasting notes Las Viñas de Eusebio

Las Viñas de Eusebio 2016 is a return to the Rioja classics in all its splendor. A delicate, serious and complex wine with a balanced mix between black fruit and spices. On the palate it is fruity, fresh and direct with a very good acidity.
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.
