Characteristics of Rioja Vega Reserva

Rioja Vega Reserva is a red wine from the appellation of origin (D.O) Rioja produced by the winery Rioja Vega, a centenarian winery from the town of Viana (La Rioja Baja).

Rioja Vega reserva is produced from the varieties Tempranillo (85%), Mazuelo (5%) and Graciano (10%). The grapes originate from 70 hectares of land with clay and chalky soils, an optimum drainage rate with a good water retention capacity.

For production, the wine is fermented at 28ºC for 10 days with an additional maceration process completed with the husks for a further 23 days.

After the vinification process of the Rioja Vega Reserva, the wine is aged for 24 months in American and French barrels, later left to rest for another 12 months in the bottle.

Serve at 17ºC
Contains sulphites
Pairing

Tasting notes Rioja Vega Reserva

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.
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.
Sight Pillory red and full bodied. Clean and bright. Nose Large aromatic intensity, mature red fruit with toasted notes, vanilla and minerals. Taste Potent and unctuous. Velvety texture with an abundance of spicy and fruity sensations. A round finish. A complex and balanced wine.
Sight Picota cherry red, high robe, clean and bright. Nose Intense aromas of ripe fruit accompanied by toasted, toffee and vanilla aromas. Taste Complex and balanced, this wine is well structured and velvety.
