2015 Sierra Cantabria Rioja Crianza, Rioja, Spain


Grapes - Tempranillo

Region - Rioja, Spain

Winemaking - 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 for 14.5 months in Bordeaux barrels of French and American oak.

What it tastes Like - Delicous aromas of ripe blackberry and cherry, with light oak hints of spice, smoke, and chocolate combine to form a complex, but easy drinking, Rioja with layers of flavour.
