Characteristics of Sierra Cantabria Cuvée Especial

Sierra Cantabria Cuvée is a red wine from the D.O la Rioja produced by the winery Sierra Cantabria. This is a single varietal made from Tempranillo, the most common grape of the region.

The grapes used for Sierra Cantabria Cuvée originate from the winery's own vineyards, located in Laguardia and Labastida.

The average age of the vines are around 30 years old and grow in calcareous soils, the vines are treated exclusively with organic fertilisers.

The harvest is performed by hand. The grapes undergo a double selection process: in the vineyard and the winery.

For production, Sierra Cantabria Cuvée is achieved through a traditional methodology. The grapes are first cold macerated for 48 hours and after a post-fermentative phase with its husks for 20 days.

During the fermentation process, 2 daily pump overs are performed. Forthe maceration phase, the pump overs are reduced till they reach one every 2 days.

Sierra Cantabria Cuvée is aged for 12 months in American (60%) and French (40%).

To enjoy the wine to its fullest, we recommend decanting the wine half an hour before serving.

Alcohol: 14.0%
Serve at 16ºC
We recommend decanting before consumption

Tasting notes Sierra Cantabria Cuvée Especial

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.
