Characteristics of Macán

Macán is a single-variety Tempranillo red wine produced by the Benjamín de Rotschild & Vega Sicilia winery in the D.O.Ca. Rioja.

The Benjamín de Rotschild & Vega Sicilia winery is located northeast of Samaniego, in Rioja Alavesa, in a place called San Millán. The architecture of the winery fits in with the landscape as a sign of respect and sensitivity to the environment. It is made up of three separate warehouses, each of them home to a part of the winemaking process: production, aging and dispatch, and named after the basic elements of nature: water, earth and sun. All work in the Benjamín de Rotschild & Vega Sicilia winery is carried out sustainably. A statement of intent!

Macán is made with grapes from vineyards over 30 years old that are harvested with the utmost care to ensure the integrity of the bunches.

After alcoholic fermentation, the resulting wine undergoes malolactic fermentation: 70% in stainless steel tanks and the other 30% in barrels. It then ages for 15 months in new, fine and extra fine grain French wood barrels, and a very small amount of the wine ages in barrels that have been used for one year.

Macán is an excellent Rioja wine that is the result of a joint vision of two great names in international winemaking: Rothschild and Vega Sicilia, whose hallmark of elegance and quality is undoubtedly clear.

Tasting notes Macán

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.
Macán is a silky and elegant red wine with great aging potential. Its expressiveness is subdued but this becomes more developed and refined over the years. The nose reveals ripe red and black fruits with nuances of leather and spices. On the palate it is flavoursome, fresh and elegant. The fruit strengthens and is complemented by chocolate notes and velvety and elegant tannins.
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.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
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.
