Characteristics of López Cristóbal Crianza

López Cristobal Crianza is a red wine from the D.O. Ribera del Duero made by the López Cristobal winery. It is a single variety Tinta del País to which a little Merlot is also added.

The estate from which the wine comes from, named La Colorada, is located at an altitude of 790 metres. The vineyard is around 30 years old, and grows on limestone soil. After the harvest, which is carried out manually and in little fruit crates to transport the berries, the harvested grapes pass over a selection table. 

After undergoing the different production processes, including alcoholic fermentation at a constant temperature of 28ºC, López Cristobal Crianza ages for 12 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels. Before being sold, this wine rests in the bottle for another year.
Alcohol: 13.5%
Serve at 17ºC
Pairing
Poultry, Rice with meat, Roasts, Grilled red meats

Tasting notes López Cristóbal Crianza

After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
