Characteristics of XIII Lunas

XIII Lunas is a red wine from La Rioja produced by Bodegas Fin de Siglo, part of Perelada group. This wine is a blend of Grenache (55%) and Tempranillo (45%).

After the harvest and the selection of clusters, the XIII Lunas wort is fermented in stainless steel.

During the winemaking process, XIII Lunas ages for 12 months in 225 litre barrels of French oak. From this derives the name of this wine. In a year, or in the twelve months it rests in the barrel, the moon takes 13 turns around the earth.

Bodegas Fin de Siglo was established in 1999 when a group of families in the wine growing village of Arenzana de Abajo decided to join forces in a common project.

The winery is now part of Perelada group, together with five other wineries.

Tasting notes XIII Lunas

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.
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.
Sight Intense and bright red ruby. Nose Notes of barrel aging and fresh touches of red fruits. Taste Good freshness, silky and well structured. It is a modern and easy to drink wine.
Sight Fruity intensity is noted in the glass’ colour. Picota cherry red. Clean and bright. Nose Seductive predominant red wild fruits may be found in this wine’s intense and fresh aroma. Taste Equally fruity, broad, voluminous and with a very delicate tannic structure that comes from both the fruit and its ageing in oak barrels. This all leads to a long and elegant finish. A current and easy-to-drink wine.

    22/09/19 XIII Lunas 2015 Encountered it on a short vacation in Catalunya. Drank too much of it there but decided it was so good that I needed more. Great flavors but without being heavy. Light on tannin. Just superbly drinkable.
