Characteristics of Sierra Cantabria Reserva

Sierra Cantabria Reserva is a red wine made with Tempranillo and Graciano grapes from over 30 year old vineyards with low yields planted on the winery's land in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in the D.O. La Rioja.
The harvest is carried out by hand and the grape bunches are sorted. Once destemmed, the grapes begin the alcoholic fermentation for 8 days with the selected yeasts. The wine goes through a post-fermentative maceration with its skins for 21 days, carrying out two energetic pump-overs per day until the wine finishes fermenting. During the maceration, the frequency of the pump-overs is reduced according to the process of the maceration, to avoid the extraction of bitter and vegetal nuances from the grapes.
The malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels. The ageing lasts for 18 months in French and American oak barrels, 40% new, and 60% a maximum of 3 wines old. The wine is racked every 4 months and is bottled without being filtered.
Serve at 18.0ºC

Tasting notes Sierra Cantabria Reserva

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.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight Bright ruby red. Nose Intense and complex in the nose. Notes of ripe, fresh fruit, hints of spices, vanilla and toasted touches from the barrel. Taste Velvety on the palate. Good structure, balanced tannins, powerful but balanced. Very ripe red fruit. Vanilla and balsamic touches.

Sight Ruby red with tile-red edges. Good robe. Bright and abundant tears. Nose Elegant, tasty and warm aromas with ripe fresh fruit and well assembled creamy notes of bakery, elegant toasted notes and light vanilla touches. Taste

Good attack, with a warmth that is counterbalanced by a balanced acidity that provides it with lots of freshness (special to this Reserva wine). The fresh ripe fruit appears wrapped with toasty, spicy and roasted notes. Light balsamic aromas are also noticed. Some complexity. Long lingering finish with a fruity aftertaste.
A Reserva wine very friendly and pleasant to drink.
