Characteristics of Portia Crianza

Portia Crianza is a red wine from the Ribera del Duero region produced by the Portia winery. This wine is produced using only Tempranillo grapes.

The grapes used to make Portia Crianza come from four different estates managed by either the staff from the winery or by trusted winemakers. The estates used are Roa, Gumiel de Mercado, Sotillo de la Ribera and Villanueva de Gumiel. These plots are situated at around 820 metres above sea level with a yield of around 5,000 kilos per hectare.

After the harvest has been carried out and the grapes have been transported to the winery, they ferment in controlled conditions in tanks at a constant temperature of 26°C. Finally, before being bottled, the wine is aged for about a year in American oak barrels.

The Portia winery is known for its spectacular facilities: built from concrete, wood, steel and glass, it occupies 12,500 metres. The facilites were designed at the hands of the architect Norman Foster, an award-winning architect who has won many awards including the 2009 Prince of Asturias Award for the Arts.

Tasting notes Portia Crianza

After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
Portía Crianza 2015 is an intense, deep and complex red wine. An excellent vintage that is reflected in this wine with a delicious balance between the aromas of ripe black fruit and the notes of its ageing, with a broad mouth and with certain freshness.
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.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
