Characteristics of Sonsierra Crianza

Sonsierra Crianza is a red wine produced by the winery Bodegas Sonsierra in San Vicente de Sonsierra, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Bodegas Sonsierra was born in 1962, when more than 240 vinegrowers from San Vicente de la Sonsierra decided to create a cooperative where they could produce their own wines. This was the first cooperative in La Rioja to market its wines indicating the origin of each on the label.

Currently, Bodegas Sonsierra controls 516 hectares of their own vineyards, all of them belonging to their partners. These are planted with vines that go from 20 to 130 years old on average, distributed in 1500 small plots. Deep soils, mainly clayey-calcareous, planted only with native varieties. These vineyards are clearly influenced by a unique microclimate: mild temperatures all year round, with moderate rainfall, a good temperature difference between day and night in the ripening season, an excellent ventilation of the vines thanks to the winds that blow 80% of the days, and their South orientation with a certain tilt of the vines, favouring the plants' exposure to sunlight.

 

Sonsierra Crianza is a wine made from Tempranillo, from old vines that are over 40 years old, located on the foothill of the Sierra de Cantabria.

The harvest is performed by hand. Once it arrives at the winery, and after a slight crushing, it goes through a pre-fermentation maceration for 24 hours. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel deposits for 9 days at a temperature (max. 26ºC) with periodic pump-overs. Once it has ended, it goes through post-fermentative maceration for 24-48 hours. The malolactic fermentation takes place in concrete deposits. The ageing process lasts 12 months in Bordeaux barrels made of American and French oak and a minimum of 3 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes Sonsierra Crianza

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.
Sonsierra Crianza 2015 is a juicy, harmonic and lingering wine. This vintage has a good aromatic intensity, with the notes from the ageing standing out over the red fruit notes. In the mouth it is balanced, with an unusual freshness.
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.
