Characteristics of Ramón Bilbao Viñedos de Altura

Ramón Bilbao Viñedos de Altura is a red wine from Rioja produced by Bodegas Ramon Bilbao.

It is a renowned Spanish winery in Haro, the historic wine town of La Rioja Alta, known for the quantity and quality of the wines produced there.

Ramón Bilbao Viñedos de Altura is a blend of equal parts of Tempranillo (50%) and Grenache (50%) varieties. The grapes come from carefully selected old vineyards in the higher parts of the Rioja in the towns of Villalba de Rioja and Tudelilla.

Its development begins with a manual harvest and selection in the cellar. With the best grapes selected, malolactic fermentation occurs in new French oak barrels.

In these same barrels, the wine is aged for 15 months on its lees. Bodegas Ramón Bilbao is a nearly a century old now and has great international recognition. In this regard, it was named best winery in the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2014.

Tasting notes Ramón Bilbao Viñedos de Altura

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.
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 Intense cherry with violet reflections. Nose Aromas of ripe red fruit with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Floral and balsamic background. Taste Fresh and wide entrance. Of sweet and tasty fruit with hints of intense pace. Good astringency and acidity. Something spicy aftertaste.
Sight Violet cherry colour. Nose Floral and black fruit notes and aromas of red candy with balsamic and minerals. Taste Fresh and sweet, with a broad and long finish. Slightly fruity.
