BORDÓN CRIANZA

Vineyards

Made from Tempranillo and Red Garnacha from vineyards in the 3 sub-areas in Rioja with different soil types: Rioja Alta, Rioja alavesa and Rioja Oriental, northward-facing in the foothills of the Sierra de la Demanda

Preparation

Once the fruit has benn chosen, the preparation is based on de-stemming the bunches and a light pressing of the grapes, prior to alcoholic and malolactic fermentation

Ageing

The wine is aged in medium-roasted white American (Ohio) and French oak barrels for 14 months, with decanting every 4 months to facilitate the natural filtering process. It then stays for 6 months in the bottle for refinement.

Tasting Notes

Cherry red in colour with a ruby rim; red fruit overtones present in the nose, it is smoky with hints of liquorice. In the mouth, it is clean, tasty, fresh and balanced. It has a lengthy finish, both fruity and spicy.
