Characteristics of Rioja Vega Crianza

Rioja Vega Crianza is a red wine from La Rioja produced by the Rioja Vega winery. This wine is a blend of Tempranillo (80%), Grenache (15%) and Mazuelo (5%).

Different types of grapes are used for the production of Rioja Vega Crianza from the cellar' own farms.

Once the grapes are harvested and transported to the winery, a process of fermentation that lasts about ten days takes place. After this period, it is macerated with its skins for 18 days and then goes through malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 28º.

Rioja Vega Crianza finally ages in American oak barrels for about a year. Movements take place twice during this time.

Finally, Rioja Vega Crianza rests another six months in bottle before going to market. Bodega Rioja Vega was established over 125 years ago, even before La Rioja. The philosophy of this winery is to preserve the typicality of their wines despite advances in recent years.

Tasting notes Rioja Vega Crianza

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.
Rioja Vega Crianza 2015 is a structured, light and pleasant red wine. A vintage where the aromas of the ageing are in perfect balance with the aromas of the variety. In the mouth, it is round, honest and elegant.
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.
