Characteristics of Viña Real Gran Reserva

Viña Real Gran Reserva is a red wine made by the Viña Real winery in Laguardia, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

Viña Real is one of the wineries belonging toCVNE (Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España) located in Laguardia, Rioja Alavesa. In the 1920s CVNE launched the Viña Real brand, being one of the pioneers in the production of wines aged in oak barrels in this area, producing very elegant wines with all the character of the Rioja Alavesa.

The proximity of the vineyards to the old Camino Real was what inspired its name. These vineyards slope down from the Sierra Cantabria to the Ebro basin, lying on mostly clayey and chalky soils, thus being protected from the clearly Atlantic climate of the area by the mountains.

Viña Real Gran Reserva is a red wine made with Tempranillo y Graciano from a careful selection of the best grapes from the best estates in the winery.

Once the grapes are harvested, they ferment in stainless steel vats and then macerate with the skins for about 15 days. The malolactic fermentation is in French and American oak barrels with periodic manual decanting. The aging lasts for 24 months in the same barrels. Clarification with natural egg white. The wine stands in the bottle for a minimum of 36 months.

Serve at 16.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Stews, Iberian ham, Roasted Pork, Duck, Mature cheese, Roasts, Chicken stew

Tasting notes Viña Real Gran 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.
Viña Real Gran Reserva 2011 is a mature, complex and elegant red wine. An excellent vintage that displays the most refined style of Rioja Alabesa with character. A perfect blend of aromas of ripe red fruit with the notes of aging, roasted elements, tobacco and toffee. On the palate it is refined, with a harmonious mouthfeel and a very lingering finish.
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 Deep dark cherry colour with maroon reflections. Bright and clean red wine with a high robe and dense tears. Nose Intense, complex and elegant aromas. Inicially, the aromas of spices, vanilla and coffee and the nice toasted and creamy  notes provided during the ageing are noticed. After swirling the glass, very tasty notes of fruit are felt along with hints of candied nuts and a mild animal touch. Subtle balsamic background. Taste Wide and bulky attack and a long, embracing, velvety mid palate, slightly unctuous with very balanced notes of fruit and wood. Well-bodied wine with a good structure. Excellent acidity and noble sweet tannins, very well integrated. Long and intense very persistent finish.
