Hugonell Crianza Rioja 2017

A classic and smooth Rioja blend of rich strawberry fruit,
beautifully integrated vanilla and coconut flavours.


Producer Note
Rioja has many different styles, from the traditional strawberry, oaky Bordeauxinfluenced wines to some of the more modern, lighter styles. We searched for the
best of both worlds – a fruit-driven modern style of wine at Joven level and more
concentrated, typical flavours in the Crianza and Reserva levels. Carefully selected
growers from this area produce the Hugonell Joven. The Ondarre winery, which is
located 10km from Rioja’s capital of Logrono, is the specialist division of The Bodegas
Olarra Group for producing Crianza and Reserva wines. We are delighted to offer
this unique trio of wines with their original, distinctive packaging.


Vineyard
Aldeanueva de Ebro ("new hamlet of the Ebro") rises against the wind on the
plateau that runs from the slopes of Mount Yerga to the River Ebro. The vineyards
contain different types of soils, pebble and clay, at widely varying altitudes, which,
together with intensive sun exposure and low rainfall, define the vineyards of
Aldeanueva, offering great potential for quality grapes, characterised by their great
health, medium-high alcohol and intense colour.


Winemaking
The grapes were fermented at controlled temperatures of between 22 to 25°C in
stainless steel tanks with carefully selected yeasts. The wine was then aged for a
period of 12 to 14 months in a combination of American and French oak casks,
followed by four months’ bottle aging in the cellars.
