Characteristics of Laventura
Laventura is a red wine produced in La Rioja by Laventura Wines in Logroño, La Rioja.
Bryan Mac Robert is at the head of the project. This young South African, only recently settled in La Rioja, is enthusiastic and excited to produce artisanal wines. He has spent many years learning from Eben Sadie, a key figure in the international wine-making sector. His wines attempt to capture the reality of the environment, with an ecological production and little intervention.
Laventura is produced with the Tempranillo (85%) from Laguardia, Garnacha (10%) from Tudelilla and Mazuelo (5%) from San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Fermentation is carried out in open plastic containers and then aged in 600 litre barrels.
Laventura is an elegant, fresh wine with fantastic storage potential.
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.
Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
