Product Information

Variety

Garnacha (Grenache)

Ageing

11 months in French oak

Production

900 bottles

Philosophy

Grenache was the most common variety up to 30 years ago, in Rioja Baja. Arizcuren Sologarnacha tries to manifest the greatness of such variety in a specific location, the northern slopes of the Yerga Mountain Range and their adequacy as regards cultivation. Therefore some of the few remaining old vineyards are grown in search of a wine which represents its variety, the training system – bush vines – and an area, the above mentioned Yerga Mountain Range. This way, perhaps, the “desertification” of the historical Grenache vineyards which existed in that area might be reversed. The vinification intents to be as respectful as possible with the grape personality by reducing the exogenous influences to the maximum.

Area

Yerga Mountain Range, Quel, La Rioja – D.O.C. Rioja

Winemaking

Hand harvest early in the morning in 11-kilo baskets, with grape sorting in the vineyard. Destemming and 2-4 day cold maceration in stainless steel vats. Alcoholic fermentation with wild yeasts, at a temperature around 25ºC. Daily punchings and pumping-overs until density reached
1070, then just punchings until the completion of the fermentation. Short post-fermentation maceration (2-3 days). Malolactic conversion and maturation in contact with the fermentation lees for 4 months in 500-litre French oak casks, with weekly battonages. Raking and a further maturation period in the same casks but without the lees, totalling 11 months of ageing in oak.

Tasting Note

”Very bright summer-berry aromas here. Really pure. The palate has deliciously fleshy fruit, with smooth, velvety tannins and a flavor-soaked, fresh finish. Drink or hold”. James Suckling, Thursday, August 2, 2018
