Viña Real is made from grapes grown in Rioja Alavesa where the people of the villages are dedicated almost totally to grape growing, this being a deep rooted tradition, passed down from generation to generation.
The grapes which make up Viña Real Crianza are sourced from our own vineyards in Laguardia and from our trusted providers in Rioja Alavesa who have supplied us for many years.
De-stemmed grapes were transferred to stainless steel vats for the alcoholic fermentation at temperature control between 26-28℃. Following completion of the malolactic fermentation, the wine was transferred to French and American oak barrels where it aged for 13 to 14 months. During this period the wine is racked every 5-6 months to encourage ripening and proper organoleptic development.
The wine is medium cherry red in color, bright and intense with violet hints at the rim. The nose shows intense aromas of fresh fruits such as black currants and blackberries, complemented by subtle notes from the wine's time in oak, including spicy, toasted and balsamic touches. On the palate, the wine is structured and rounded with no angular components, it is full bodied and has well integrated fruits and oak. The finish is long and fine, well balanced tannins. A perfect match for a wide range of dishes, including stews, vegetables, rice, fish in sauce and all types of meat.
