Viña Salceda Crianza
Red wine Crianza. 15 months in American oak barrels.

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.
