Characteristics of Remírez de Ganuza Blanco

Remírez de Ganuza Blanco is produced from the varieties Viura (60%) and Malvasía (30%) and Garnacha Blanca (10%). The vines are planted in 80 hectares of land with a low grape production rate, average vine age: 60 years old.

The harvest is completed rigorously by hand in small 12kg capacity containers. Using the technical term "entresaca" or "select" that consists to peel away the cluster of grapes for a better exposure of air.

For production the free run juice is separated from the skins and the pulp and subsequently fermented in new French oak barrels. In the same barrels, the wine is aged for 8 months on its own lees, with frequent bâtonnages.

Tasting notes Remírez de Ganuza Blanco

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.
Sight Yellow with greenish hues. Clean and bright. Nose Aromas of tropical fruits and citrus combined with subtle roasted memories and a few herbal notes. Taste Very fresh and unctuous. Passing is creamy and structured with citrus memories and notes of vanilla. Good acidity. Long finish.
