Characteristics of Viña Real Crianza

Vina Real Crianza is a red wine from La Rioja produced by Viña Real, a member of the CVNE group. It is a blend of Tempranillo (90%), which clearly dominates, and Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano (10%).

Vina Real Crianza is produced from grapes from vineyards in the area of La Rioja Alavesa, they are harvested manually and undergo the production process in the Viña Real.

The grapes, once destemmed, are left in stainless steel tanks where the alcoholic fermentation takes place for 10 to 12 days at 26º.

After malolactic fermentation, Vina Real Crianza is transferred to barrels of American and French oak.

Vina Real Crianza is aged for a period of between 13 and 14 months. During this time, the wine is racked every half year.

The CVNE group is made up of Cune, Contino, and Viña Real wineries. This winery, which already has 125 years of history, is known for its ability to combine tradition and innovation.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Tasting notes Viña Real Crianza

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.
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.
Sight Cherry red with violet hues. Upper-middle layer, clear and bright. Nose Intense notes of ripe fruit with hints of oak. Spicy and toasted memories. Taste Structured perfectly, it combines the flavours of fruit and wood. Large and persistent, balanced tannins.
