Characteristics of Luis Cañas Fermentado en Barrica

Luis Cañas Fermentado en Barrica is a white wine from D.O. La Rioja produced by Bodegas Luis Cañas in Villabuena, Álava. In 1970, this producer started to bottle and market their wines when many others still sold wines in bulk. In 1994, they opened a new winery with the most modern production systems.

They own 350 hectares, mainly planted on clayey-calcareous soils, distributed in 870 plots located in La Rioja Alavesa, an area with an excellent wine tradition. They use a rational viticulture that does not use any herbicides or synthetic fertilisers.

The climate of Rioja Alavesa is a transition between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean climate. The Sierra de Cantabria mountain range protects form the winds and storm from the north, creating a dry climate with large temperature variations that make it perfect for the cultivation of vines and their optimal ripening.

Luis Cañas Fermentado en Barrica is a white wine from D.O. La Rioja produced by Bodegas Luis Cañas. It is a coupage of the varieties Viura (85%) and Malvasía (15%). The grapes for Luis Cañas Fermentado en Barrica come from old vineyards that are over 50 years old. The harvest is done manually and the bunches are selected in the actual vineyard and in the winery.

Luis Cañas Fermentado en Barrica ferments for 17 days at a temperature of 19ºC. Then, it is transferred to new French oak barrels (75%) and American oak barrels (25%) to undergo the malolactic fermentation. It rests in these barrels for 3 months on its lees, resulting in a voluminous and full-bodied wine.

Tasting notes Luis Cañas Fermentado en Barrica

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.
