Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Sierra Cantabria Gran Reserva is a barrel-aged red wine made with the Tempranillo and Graciano varieties by Sierra Cantabria in the D.O.Ca. Rioja.

The Eguren family has been cultivating the vineyard since 1870, with the 5th generation going one step further and building their own winery in 1957 in the town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra (Rioja Alta). Under the Sierra Cantabria brand, brothers Marcos and Miguel Egure make a wide range of classic wines in the heart of the D.O.Ca. Rioja.

Sierra Cantabria Gran Reserva comes from old vines over 30 years old, planted in clay-calcareous soil at a high altitude. In the vineyard they use integrated viticulture practices with organic fertiliser and no systematic products. Production is also limited to 35 hectolitres per hectare to achieve a higher concentration in the fruit. Once the grapes reach optimum ripeness, they are harvested manually, selecting the clusters one by one.

After the Sierra Cantabria Gran Reserva grapes have been destemmed, winemaking begins with native yeasts at a controlled temperature of between 28 and 32ºC for 9 days. There is also a post-fermentation maceration with daily pump-overs for 8 days. Finally, it ages in American oak barrels for 24 months with racking every 4 months for the first year and every 6 for the second.

Sierra Cantabria Gran Reserva is a clear example of a long-aged Rioja. A Gran Reserva red wine that, despite its age, maintains a very good balance between fruit and wood.

The winery Bodega Sierra Cantabria is located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, a village with a great winemaking tradition in the hear of La Rioja. The winery belongs to the Eguren family. A family that has been making wine for five generations in La Rioja, and with projects in other Denominations of Origin, such as Teso la Monja winery in D.O. Toro. The wines of Sierra Cantabria are wines with a classic Rioja style. They try to provide somewhat more modernity, leaving the wood in the background and making the fruit and the intensity stand out.

Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
