Mazuelo (Carignan)

Ageing

11 months in 500L French oak cask

Our philosophy

The mazuelo (also known as carignan) is a grape variety that historically has been part of the great wines of Rioja, being largely responsible for its longevity. Arizcuren solomazuelo aims to highlight the benefits of this variety in a specific place, the northern slopes of Sierra de Yerga. Vineyard in goblet, height of 550m above sea level, in clayey soils with abundant pebbles and low fertility. The viticulture practised seeks the highest quality grapes: low yields around 4,000 Kg/Ha, basal deleafing in the north-east side, optimal phenolic maturation of skin and seeds, all these without excessive probable alcoholic content. The vinification intends 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

This wine takes a gently riper path into darker berry fruits with smoothly rendered and gently tangy blueberry and cassis to close. James Suckling.
