Characteristics of Viña Salceda Reserva

Viña Salceda Reserva is a red wine from the Rioja produced by Bodegas Viña Salceda. This winery is located in the municipality of Elciego, La Rioja Alavesa.

Viña Salceda Reserva is made from Tempranillo (95%) and a small percentage of Graciano (5%). The grapes come from vineyards with under-average performance on clay-limestone, suitable for growing such varieties.

In addition, the vineyards are grown in a sustainable way and little interventionist methods are used.

The development of Viña Salceda Reserva begins with a harvest and manual selection. Once in the winery, the fermentation process is carried out and the wine is aged for about 18 months in French and American oak.

Tasting notes Viña Salceda Reserva

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.
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.
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.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight Cherry red high layer. Clean, bright and deep. Nose Great aromatic intensity, ripe black fruits with spices and toasted notes. Mineral background. Taste Powerful, wide and silky entrance.

A good acidity makes up for its noticeable tannins. Long and persistent finish, leaving toasted and spicy nuances. 
Sight Intense dark cherry colour with maroon reflections. Clean and bright wine with dense tears. Nose Very intense aromas, among which the notes of ripe black fruit stand out along with good toasted notes and multiple spices, both hot (black pepper and cloves) and sweet (vanilla, cacao). Subtle balsamic and herbal arômas are also felt. A wine that gains in intensity and expressiveness when it opens up. Taste Powerful and broad attack with a great well bodied mid palate. It shows a velvety texture. The tasty ripe black fruit is still dominant along with the good and creamy notes provided during the ageing. Very balanced wine with a good and not very marked acidity and integrated tannins, which still need some time to round out. Very long and persistent finish that coats the palate with nice spicy sensations.
Sight Intense cherry color, with touches of red and glyceric tears.
Nose Powerful and intense, highlighting the fruit (especially plums) with mint notes and hints of sweet spices at the end.

Sight Intense body color, ruby red, dark cherry trim. Nose Intense and complex. After stirring, notes of black fruit (blackberry, elderberry, blackthorn) merged with spicy (clove, vanilla and hints of black pepper).
Taste Attack large, opulent and structured half mouth rounded tannins, long finish. Elegant wine, frank, with good acidity. Become aromatic notes of fruit and spices with toasted notes of fine wood.
