Characteristics of Viña Salceda Crianza

Viña Salceda Crianza is a red wine from DO Rioja, produced by the Viña Salceda winery, located in El Ciego, a population with a great wine-making tradition in La Rioja Alavesa.

This wine is a blend of Tempranillo (95%) with a touch of Mazuelo and Graciano (5%). The winery's vineyards are situated in the cultivated areas of La Dehesilla, El Roquial and Valdefrailes, whose calcareous clay soils are ideal for Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano varieties. In addition, this culture follows the traditional methods, the land is tilled instead of using herbicides, and both pruning and harvesting is done by hand.

The 2011 vintage of Viña Salceda Crianza spent a mild winter, a very warm spring, a mild summer and a hot autumn. It was a reasonably dry year.

The development of this classic from La Rioja began with a manual pruning and harvesting. Later it is selected on a table and undergoes alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Finally this wine is aged for 12 months in American oak barrels and spends several months resting in bottle.

The quality of this new vintage of Viña Salceda is guaranteed: it has achieved the gold medal at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2011 with a score of 91/100 in 2015 Repsol Guide.

Tasting notes Viña Salceda 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.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca 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.
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.
