Characteristics of Sierra Cantabria Organza

Sierra Cantabria Oganza is a white wine produced by the Viñedos Sierra Cantabria winery in the Rioja region. Viñedos Sierra Cantabria is a small winery that belongs to the Sierra Cantabria group, owned by the Eguren family, also owners of the wineries Teso la Monja in Toro and Sierra Cantabria and Dominio de Eguren also in Rioja.

Sierra Cantabria Organza
is a classic riojan blend white wine, containing the varieties Viura, Malvasía and Grenache Blanc. The grapes come from the wineries own vineyards situated in San Vincente de la Sonsierra, in the Rioja Alta.

The vinyards are cultivated in an ecological manner which is respectful to the environment. Infact, the Sierra Cantabria does not use chemical products, only organic fertilizers every 2 years.

The harvest is carried out manually, with the grapes being transported to the winery in small boxes of no more than 20kg, which ensure they remain in the best condition possible. On arrival at the winery, the best bunches are again selected at a selection table. The grapes then undergo cold maceration for 12 hours before being fermented in new French oak barrels from Vosgues at 14-16ºC with indigenous yeasts.

Sierra Cantabria Organza is then aged for 9 months in barrels. The wine spends the first six months on its lees, with battonages occuring every week.

It is an elegant white wine, flavourful and complex and serves as a brilliant example of barrel aged white wines in the Rioja region.

Tasting notes Sierra Cantabria Organza

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.
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.
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.
Sight Pretty and intense straw yellow colour with green and gold reflections. Clean and very bright. Pretty fine tears show on the glass. Nose Medium-high intensity and very complex. Perfect balance between fruity aromas (ripe white fruit, tropical notes and citrus peel) and aromas of its production process (fine toasted notes, hints of yeast). Light floral and balsamic notes in the background. Taste This white wine has bulky attack and is rich and structured on the palate with a very nice refreshing acidity. Powerful smoky, spicy and toasted notes that linger throughout a long and persistent finish.
Sight Pretty and intense straw yellow colour with green and gold reflections. Clean and very bright. Pretty, fine tears show on the glass. Nose Medium-high intensity, very complex. A perfect balance between fruity aromas (ripe white fruit, tropical notes and citrus peel) and aromas from its elaboration (fine toasted notes, hints of yeast). Light floral and balsamic notes in the background. Taste This white wine is bulky, unctuous and structured, with a very good acidity that refreshes and sharpens its passage through the mouth. Powerful smoky, spicy and toasted notes linger after a long and persistent finish.
Sight The tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.
Sight Very bright and clean golden colour. Very good and glyceric legs. Nose Intense and fine aromas of fruit among which white fruits (green apple) and citrus take centre stage. Its subtle minerality and its wide creamy notes round out this wine. Taste As its name suggests (Organza), this white wine by Sierra Cantabria is pure silk and one of the best and most elegant. It has a very good attack and a very tasty, silky and unctuous mid palate. The white fruit and citrus reemerge along with a touch of herbs and nuts. Wooden notes are barely noticed, since they are very well integrated with some smoky notes. Fine acidity that provides the adequate freshness. Long and very persistent finish. Very elegant wine.
