TASTING NOTES

Colour: Ruby-red colour.
Nose: A clean nose with balsamic notes and fine nuances of plum and clean oak.
Palate: Smooth, fruit and spice flavours with toasted oak. Complex and structured. A pleasant finish with red fruits and hints of eucalyptus.
            [Notes2] => Elegant but full-flavoured wine with supple dark cherry fruits, hints of sweet oak, and a beautifully smooth finish.
            [Notes3] => Smooth, elegant wine with supple rounded dark cherry fruits.
            [Notes4] => It was a shorter vintage than usual in terms of quantity, but of a very high level of quality. Quantity wise, a 25-30% decrease in yield compared to a normal year`s harvest. Great concentration of colour and grade that will allow keeping back wines with great longevity and with lots of fruit. Very favourable year for the cultivation of the vine, with two shocks at the beginning and end of the cycle. There was no excessive rainfall but very well distributed throughout the year, which helped the vines show no signs of drought and allowing the grapes to ripen perfectly. The only critical moment caused by the rains was the 70 litres dropped in September, which produced some breakage in berries, especially whites and fortunately was negligible thanks to the high temperatures in the following days of above 30 degrees. This dried the grapes completely and didn`t let the fearsome botrytis develop. It was a vintage that accumulated an advance of about 10 days compared to a normal year. The low production, the favourable climate during most of the year, the morphology of grains and clusters and the good work of the winemakers resulted in very high quality wines.

            [WineMakingNotes] => VINIFICATION

95% old vine Tempranillo and 5% Garnacha. Upon entering the bodega and passing the selection table, the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed before undergoing fermentation and then maceration in small stainless steel tanks for a total of 20 days at controlled temperatures, obtaining better colour extraction as well as much more complex wines, suitable for prolonged ageing. The wine is clarified and followed by anicrobic filtration. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in the deposits too.

THE AGEING

The wine is placed in American and French oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months ageing. It is then bottled an aged for at least a further 12 months.

About this product +

Producer >

Founded in 1928, although the family can trace their roots in Rioja soil over two centuries. They have 90 organically managed hectares in the hills of the cooler Rioja Alavesa region, as well as long term contracts with growers covering a further 200 hectares of mixed regime viticulture. This is a dynamic, forward looking producer making elegant, fruit-filled wines which are neither over-oaked, nor over-alcoholic. Being green at Luis Cañas is not a marketing tool – it’s their philosophy and key to success.

Viticulture >

Elegant but full-flavoured wine with supple dark cherry fruits, hints of sweet oak, and a beautifully smooth finish.

Winemaking >

VINIFICATION 95% old vine Tempranillo and 5% Garnacha. Upon entering the bodega and passing the selection table, the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed before undergoing fermentation and then maceration in small stainless steel tanks for a total of 20 days at controlled temperatures, obtaining better colour extraction as well as much more complex wines, suitable for prolonged ageing. The wine is clarified and followed by anicrobic filtration. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in the deposits too. THE AGEING The wine is placed in American and French oak barrels for a minimum of 12 months ageing. It is then bottled an aged for at least a further 12 months.
