Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Albret Crianza is a red wine produced by the winery Finca Albret in Villafranca, D.O. Navarra.

 

The winery Finca Albret was founded in 2002. With its name it intends to pay tribute to the last king of Navarra, Juan de Albret.

Finca Albret has over 200 hectares of vineyards located in an area between mountains, with a climate that is ideal for the development of the vines. This, along with a meticulous selection of grapes from the small plots, allows them to obtain the best grapes to make a range of wines that convey all the character of the terroir with elegance and complexity.

Right now, Finca Albret, along with Rioja Vega and other wineries, belongs to Grupo Príncipe de Viana.

 

Albret Crianza is a red wine made from Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from their own vineyards.

The harvest takes place by hand and at night to preserve all the features of the grapes. When the grapes arrive at the winery, they go through a pre-fermentation maceration for 24 days at 8ºC. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits with selected yeasts. When the fermentation has ended, it is goes through a post-fermentation maceration for 14 days and it is aged for 14 months in 225-litre oak barrels, 35% French and the rest, American. Before it is launched on the market, it is left to stand in the bottle for 10 months.

 

Albret Crianza is a thin, deep and complex wine. On the nose, it stands out for its aromas of ripe red fruit, mixed perfectly with roasted notes, like coffee and cocoa. In the mouth, it is balanced, elegant and persistent.

Some wine regions have to bear the weight of their own prestige and fame, and this is certainly the case for Navarra. For many years, the white and reds produced in this region came second to the rosés produced here with the noble Grenacha variety. However, the last two decades have seen ongoing changes in the wine-making sector in Navarra, changes which have completely transformed the styles of wine produced and have been consistently worthwhile, resulting in  some of the white and red wines produced in Navarra being ranked among best rated in Spain.
