Characteristics of Pontac de Portiles

Pontac de Portiles (Q.D.O. Rioja) is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Grenache. It's produced with grapes from Portiles single-estate of 1.5 hectares planted in 1920. The grape harvest is carried out with the strictest controls, with the grapes going through 2 sorting tables, the first in the field and the second in the winery. The crushed must ferments in 400kg barrels from Burgundy with constant controls and the caps being punched regularly. Once the alcoholic fermentation finishes the wine is put into ageing barrels where it goes through a malolactic fermentation. It ages in completely new French Ermitage and Radoux barrels for 20 months. The wine then rests and refines in the bottle for 15 months more.

Tasting notes Pontac de Portiles

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.
Sight Intense picota cherry colour with violet rims. Clean and very bright. High robe. Elegant tears on the glass. Nose Clean, intense, direct, defined and complex. Aromas of ripe black fruit along with notes of fine woods. Notes of violet and jasmine, clove, pepper and vanilla. Complex roasted, minty, earthy aromas and leather. Taste Powerful, elegant, bulky and structured. Black fruits mixed with chocolate and roasted notes (coffee, toffee, etc...). Fantastic acidity, defined and integrated. Ripe, fine and very enjoyable tannins. This red wine has a long and persistent finish leaving a fruity aftertaste and elegant, fine smoky and toasted notes at retro-olfaction.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

The winery is located in a singular 4-floor circular building (two of the floors are underground) in the heart of the region of Rioja Alavesa. This winery has innovative and forward-looking facilities with the best technologies, which complements the work conducted in the vineyards. Their great wines are elaborated on the base of the two following statements: a strict grape-selection process (with selection tables straight in the vineyards) and a pioneer form of addressing wood. Their wines are produced under the D.O.C. Rioja, most of them out of the variety Tempranillo, although the varieties Viura, Malvasía, Grenache and Mazuelo are also grown.
