Characteristics of Remirez de Ganuza Blanco Reserva

Remírez de Ganuza Blanco Reserva is a white wine produced by Bodegas Remírez de Ganuza in Samaniego (Rioja Alavesa), within D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Founded in 1989, Bodegas Remírez de Ganuza was born as the personal commitment of its founder, Fernando Remírez de Ganuza.

During the 70s and 80s, Fernando was dedicated to the purchase of old vineyards in the Rioja Alavesa. This allowed him to know and select the best plots to develop his project: to produce high-quality wines with the best grapes and in the best conditions. To do so, he has not spared in resources in the vineyard and in technology for the winery, pioneering in the application of innovative production systems.

Currently, the vineyards occupy more than eighty hectares of Tempranillo, Graciano, Viura and Malvoisie, distributed throughout six towns of Sierra Cantabria. In all of them, the habitat, the microclimate, the orientation of the plots, the low yield of the vines and the age of the vineyard have been taken into account for their selection, the average age of the vines being fifty years.

 

Remírez de Ganuza Blanco Reserva is a wine made fromViura and Malvoisie, from old vineyards located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, planted at around 600 metres of altitude on clayey-calcareous soils.

The harvest is performed by hand and placed in 12-kg boxes. Once the grapes arrive at winery, they are placed into a cool chamber at 4-6ºC. Once they have gone past the selection table, the wine is made only with the flor must. It ferments in new 225-litre French oak barrels, where it ages for 12 months with its lees, stirring them by turning the barrels.

 

Remírez de Ganuza Blanco Reserva is a mature, complex and fresh wine. The aromas of very ripe white fruit stand out on a creamy and mineral background.

Tasting notes Remirez de Ganuza Blanco Reserva

A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
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.
