Characteristics of Sierra Cantabria Selección

Sierra Cantabria Selección is a red wine from Rioja produced by Bodegas Sierra Cantabria. The winery, founded by D. Guillermo Eguren in 1957, is located in the Rioja town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra between the Ebro River and the Sierra de Cantabria.

Sierra Cantabria Selección is a varietal Tempranillo. The grapes come from vineyards planted at 560 metres in San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Laguardia.

Protected from the north wind by the Sierra de Cantabria, the vineyards are cultivated under a Mediterranean-Continental microclimate.

The development of Sierra Cantabria Selección begins with a manual harvest and a double selection, one in the vineyard and one in the winery.

Once in the winery, the must ferments for 2 days at 27 ° C with selected yeasts. Subsequently a maceration lasting 17 days is performed.

To complete the fermentation process Sierra Cantabria Selección is aged for 6 months in tanks and for 6 months in American and French oak barrels.

Tasting notes Sierra Cantabria Selección

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with scarce rainfall, spring started with a lot of rain, which favoured the growth cycle of the vine. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in great, 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 defined by a voluminous vintage that can be enjoyed from its youth.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa 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.
Sight Cherry red, violet trim, upper middle layer. Nose Medium-high, very expressive intensity. Red fruit aromas with hints of dark fruit. Vanilla, and milky notes. Taste Good entry, strong and greedy. Good acidity, astringent. Nice and easy to drink. Aftertaste of ripe fruit.
Sight Intense ruby red colour. Medium-high robe. Nose A very expressive wine. Red fruits, vanilla and aromas from its ageing in oak barrels. Taste Very balanced on the palate. Polished, fresh tannins. Nuances of vanilla, oak and toasted notes like coffee and chocolate.
