Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Perfume de Sonsierra is a red wine produced by the winery Bodegas Sonsierra in San Vicente de Sonsierra, D.O.Ca. Rioja.

 

Bodegas Sonsierra was born in 1962, when more than 240 vinegrowers from San Vicente de la Sonsierra decided to create a cooperative where they could produce their own wines. This was the first cooperative in La Rioja to market its wines indicating the origin of each on the label.

Currently, Bodegas Sonsierra controls 516 hectares of their own vineyards, all of them belonging to their partners. These are planted with vines that go from 20 to 130 years old on average, distributed in 1500 small plots. Deep soils, mainly clayey-calcareous, planted only with native varieties. These vineyards are clearly influenced by a unique microclimate: mild temperatures all year round, with moderate rainfall, a good temperature difference between day and night in the ripening season, an excellent ventilation of the vines thanks to the winds that blow 80% of the days, and their South orientation with a certain tilt of the vines, favouring the plants' exposure to sunlight.

 

Perfume de Sonsierra is a wine made from Tempranillo from the old vineyard with the highest quality. It is located in the foothills of Sierra de Cantabria and it is over 40 years of age.

The harvest is performed by hand. Once it arrives at the winery, and after a slight crushing, it goes through a pre-fermentation maceration for 4 days. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel deposits for 9 days at a temperature (max. 24ºC) with periodic pump-overs. The malolactic fermentation takes place on its lees in a selection of 70 new Bordeaux barrels made of French oak. This wine is aged for 16 months in new Bordeaux French oak barrels. Before it is launched on the market, it is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of 8 months.

 

Perfume de Sonsierra is a meaty, powerful and exuberant wine. Very fragrant on the nose. In the mouth it stands out for the balance between opulence and elegance. It is the winery's treasure.
