Sierra Cantabria Rioja Crianza 

Spain – 2019


Tasting Notes

A smooth and elegant Crianza from our new star Rioja producer, which deftly balances fruit and oak. This is Sierra Cantabria's most admired wine due to its incredible value and delicate but complex style. Ripe cherry and red fruit, hints of spice and smoke, and a dusting of cocoa combine to form an elegant, complex Rioja with layers of oak and fruit. 

Food Matching: Beef, cured pork, Moroccan lamb with herbs and spices. Also aged sheep's cheese, barbecued sausages, and grilled vegetables. 

Bottle Information

Vineyard: At the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria, at an altitude of 560 meters, these vineyards have an Atlantic climate but are also influenced by Mediterranean and Continental climates. The calcareous clay soil is excellent for obtaining high-quality wines and enhancing the expression of Tempranillo. Environmental integrated agriculture cultivation, applying a viticulture respectful with the environment, following the biorhythms of the plant, and organic fertilization. 

Vinification: Grapes are traditionally destemmed and fermentation is temperature-controlled between 26 and 28ºC with indigenous yeast selected from their own vineyards. Extended maceration on the skins for 24 days, starting with two daily pump-overs and then a light pump-over daily during the last ten days. The wine ages 14.5 months in Bordeaux barrels of French and American oak.
