Crianza

Product Information
Sales Information
Robust and characterful Rioja with a deep colour and brash nose of sweet spice (clove, cinnamon), raspberry jam and leather. The palate is full bodied, with smooth tannins and lush notes of mulberry and sandalwood. Fleshy, open and opulent style.

Drink with spaghetti Bolognese, homemade burgers or five-spice pork belly.

A premium Crianza that is a terrific ambassador for the rainy Alavesa subregion of Rioja. Toasty, smooth and fruity.



The Vineyard
Made from 100% stainless-steel fermented Tempranillo that is aged for 12-14 months in barrel. 'Crianza' Riojas are wines that have been aged for a minimum of 2 years, with at least one year in barrel. They tend to richer and fuller in body than basic Jovens, but fruitier and simpler than Reservas and Gran Reservas.

The grapes are grown in the Alavesa subregion of Rioja. Along with Rioja Alta, Alavesa produces Rioja's most elegant and complex wines. The Cantabrian mountains dominate the local landscape, and chilling Atlantic weather systems frequently infiltrate the area (rainfall is double Rioja Baja's amount), imbuing the wines with bright acidity, good colour and an ability to age.
