Characteristics of Rolland Galarreta Rioja

Rolland Galarreta Rioja is a red wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by Rolland Galarreta. This is a single variety from the grape Tempranillo, the most famous grape variety of the region.

The grapes used by Rolland Galarreta Rioja originate from 540ha that are owned by Bodegas Labastida, found at an altitude between 450-750 meters above sea level.

The grapes undergo a machine selection process after the harvest. The stalks are separated from the grapes and then placed into the tanks.

Subsequently, the cap is submerged and the grapes are worked in predetermined conditions. After a long maceration process, the must for Rolland Galarreta Rioja receives pump overs to extract the desired polyphenols.

Rolland Galarreta Rioja is pressed by a pneumatic press vertically. A malolactic fermentation is carried out in new American oak barrels.

In the same barrels, Rolland Galarreta Rioja is aged for 10 months to refine itself and an additional 4 months in bottle.

Rolland Galarreta Rioja is a project set up by Michel Rolland, a French oenologist and consultant, and Javier Galarreta, a Spanish entrepreneur for Spanish wine. They produce three wines, one for each designation of origin: D.O. Rueda, D.O. La Rioja and D.O. Ribera del Duero.

Tasting notes Rolland Galarreta Rioja

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.
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.
Sight Dark cherry red. Very concentrated.  Nose Delicate and lively notes. Presence of liquorice with reminiscences of fresh fruit. Taste Wide and fleshly, it is elegant and complex. Smooth tannins with a long and persistent finish.
