Vina Real Gran Reserva 2013

Medium intensity, ruby red colour with cherry hints. The nose is very elegant highlighting oaky and spicy notes together with hints of ripe red fruits. On the palate the wine is full bodied and lively with great structure and fresh acidity. The tannins are fine, polished and well integrated. The wine has great character and personality, and is complex with a long finish.

Vineyard
Carefully selected vineyards in the Alavesa sub-region of
Rioja.
Winemaking
Made from high quality, hand harvested grapes from our best
plots in Rioja Alavesa. Fermentation took place in stainless
steel tanks at controlled temperatures and with frequent
“delestages” in order to achieve careful extraction of tannins
and color. Malolactic fermentation took place in French and
American oak barrels following which the wine was manually
racked to allow the wine to stabilize and fall bright naturally.
After ageing in barrel (70% French and 30% American) for
approximately 2 years, the wine was bottled and held in our
cellars for a minimum of 3 years, during which the wine
achieved its characteristic silkiness and elegance.
Vintages
The 2013 vintage was unusual weather-wise in Rioja Alavesa, having much higher average rainfall
than the preceding years and with a cold spring. This situation continued until June, causing
flooding in some vineyards, and as a result, flowering and fruit set were very irregular. Harvest
was then later and smaller than normal, lasting from the 7th to the 28th October. It was slow and
gradual, requiring great care and selection in the vineyard to collect only those grapes which had
ripened perfectly while excluding bunches affected by mildew and oïdium. The small production
assured good quality at the end of the harvest. In general terms, wines of this vintage are special
because of their increased acidity and freshness compared with previous vintages.
