Characteristics of Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco Reserva
Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco Reserva is a white wine from D.O.Ca. Rioja produced by the winery Rioja Vega in Mendavia.
The winery Rioja Vega was created by Felipe Ugalde more than 125 years ago, even before D.O. Rioja.
Rioja Vega has over 70 hectares of their own vineyards, planted on clayey-calcareous soils, poor in organic matter, nutrients and minerals. There are abundant boulders, gravel and alluvial remains, facilitating its drainage and perfect water retention.
Rioja Vega has known how to evolve and use state-of-the-art technologies without leaving behind tradition and the soul of their wines. Right now, along with Finca Albret and other wineries, it belongs to Grupo Príncipe de Viana.
Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco Reserva is a wine made from Tempranillo Blanco from their own vineyards.
After a manual harvest with grape selection, it ferments in French oak barrels, where it is aged with its lees for 14 months.
Rioja Vega Tempranillo Blanco Reserva is a mature, creamy and structured wine. On the nose, the aromas of tropical fruit and floral notes stand out on a background of aromas of its ageing and light toasted notes of noble woods. In the mouth, it is voluminous, with structure and a slight final freshness. Along with an elegant note of bitterness it makes it long and persistent. A wine that will give a lot to talk about.

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.
Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
More than 125 years have passed and Rioja Vega is still here. The winery, located in the appellation of origin La Rioja, is today a classic on the Spanish wine panorama. Conducted with wisdom, experience, knowledge, plus the recent technological advances and research performed by the team to offer this excellent range of wines that we see today.
