Characteristics of Ramón Bilbao Edición Limitada

Ramón Bilbao Edición Limitada Crianza is a red wine from DO Rioja produced by Bodegas Ramon Bilbao, a winery founded in 1924 by D. Ramón Bilbao Murga. However, Don Ramon and his wines produced and sold by the year 1896 in a small winery Street Las Cuevas in Haro, a town with one of the highest concentrations of wineries in the world.

The winery is located on the outskirts of Haro, one of the most privileged vine-growing wine regions. The climate in this area is continental to moderate, marked by a Cantabrian influence. Rainfall is recorded throughout the year. This wine is a varietal Tempranillo from 75 hectares of vineyards located in Rioja Alta, near the Ebro River.
The vineyards are planted on heterogeneous soils, shallow, well-drained, with occasional water shortages. As for processing, after a selection of the best grapes, grapes are fermented by hand in wooden vats at a controlled temperature. Finally, the wine undergoes a 14-month aging in new French oak barrels of Allier and American Virginia and 10 months in bottle.
 We recommend decanting at least one hour before serving.

Alcohol: 14.0%
Serve at 16ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Ramón Bilbao Edición Limitada

After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa 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.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
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.

Sight Maroon cherry colour with hints of purple. Medium robe. Clean and bright wine with abundant fast-falling tears. Nose Very elegant and perfectly harmonious aromas.

Nose Its initial aromas provided by the oak are completed with notes of red fruit. When it opens up, the red and black fruit turns into very ripe and sweet fruit, almost candied, which is noticed along with a wide range of spices such as cinnamon, vanilla, coconut and licorice, on a delicate background of toasted and smoked notes.
