Characteristics of Suañé Blanco Reserva

Suañé Blanco Reserva is a white wine made with the Sauvignon Blanc and Viura (Macabeo) varieties produced in the D.O.Ca. Rioja by the Alonso & Pedrajo winery.

A friendship between two families, Alonso & Pedrajo embarked on this wine project in 2011 in the town of Villalba de Rioja. A unique enclave at the foot of the Obaranes Mountains that offers the diversity of clay-calcareous soils and a marked shift in climates, mainly continental with Atlantic influences. They use minimal intervention in production and all their wines age on their own lees.

The Suañé Blanco Reserva vintage comes from two plots in Rioja. Firstly, the Viura variety, which are over 70 years old and planted at 615 m, and secondly the Sauvignon Blanc variety of young strains sitting at 580 m. They practice responsible viticulture and the harvest is carried out manually.

In the winery, the grapes are destemmed and fermented spontaneously at a controlled temperature. Suañé Blanco Reserva spends 12 months aging on its own lees in French oak barrels. It is decanted, which causes spontaneous clarification and then lightly filtered before being bottled. It is refined in the bottle for 14 months.

Suañé Blanco Reserva is a barrel-aged white wine that, as its name suggests, Suañé, from the French term “soigne”, is delicate and refined.

Tasting notes Suañé Blanco Reserva

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.
Suañé Blanco Reserva 2015 is a creamy white wine with floral notes, white fruits and citrus touches. The palate is elegant, unctuous, silky and refreshing.
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.
