Characteristics of Malaspiedras

Malaspiedras is a red wine produced in La Rioja by El Mozo Wines in Lanciego, Alava.

El Mozo Wines is a family winery with 40 years of history. The third generation Itxaso, Gorka and little Unai are currently in charge of the project. They all used to work in different sectors, and due to certain circumstances, they returned to their roots to contribute to the great legacy of the family vineyards.

The vineyards´ 9 hectares are spread out over the town of La Rioja Alavesa de Lanciego, divided into 18 different micro-plots. Some of the vines are more than 70 years old.

To make Malaspiedras, they use the oldest vines planted by their grandparents, just like the El Plano, Balondo, Vasconegro and El Anagorio plots. All of them are eco-friendly.

Malaspiedras ferments these plots separately in 1000 litre open plastic tanks with its own yeast. The wine is aged in 500 litre French, American and Hungarian oak barrels.

Malaspiedras is a red wine with excellent harmony, delicious fruits and a good depth thanks to the ageing process.

Tasting notes Malaspiedras

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.
