Characteristics of Viñas del Cadastro
Viñas del Cadastro is a red wine from the Arlanza region produced by Olivier Rivière. The wine is predominantly made using Tempranillo (95%) grapes, with a small touch of Grenache (5%).
The grapes used to make Viñas del Cadastro are grown exclusively in the town of Covarrubias, close to Burgos. The area is home to a moderate continental climate, with mild summers and cold winters, where temperatures reach as low as -10ºC.
The vineyards used to make Viñas del Cadastro are ecologically cultivated and are situated at 950-1000 metres above sea level. The soil consists mainly of gravel with a high presence of boulders. The yield on the vineyards is relatively low, reaching a maximum of 1,500 kilos per hectare.
The grapes are vinified seperately depending on the vineyards they were grown on. The grapes then ferment in small tanks that have between a 1,000-1,500 litre capacity. After the grapes are pressed.
Viñas del Cadastro then rests for 19 months in french oak barrels, 20% of which are new. The wine is then bottled without being clarified or filtered.
Olivier Rivière is a renowned winemaker who launched his own winery in 2012. He has previously worked for major wineries in Spain and abroad. His wines manage to convey all the qualities of the soil.
Oficially recognised in 2007, the D.O. Arlanza is one of the latest DOs to be recognised in the autonomous community of Castilla y León, although viticulture in the region dates back to the tenth century. Today, the wines from Arlanza are modern, made predominantly with the region’s star variety, the Tempranillo (or Tinto Fino), where the terrain and climate of the region, as well as the meticulous care in all work carried out, ensures that the wines from Arlanza possess certain characteristics and nuances that distinguish it from the neighbouring Ribera del Duero region.
