BORDÓN RESERVA

Vineyards

Made from Tempranillo 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 been 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 American (Ohio) and French oak barrels for at least 30 months, with decanting every 6 months to facilitate the natural filtering process. It then stays in the bottle 6 months for refinement.
Degree: 14%

Tasting Notes

Colour: Ripe cherry in colour with ruby-red hues and a medium-high depth.
Nose: Fairly intense aromas and elegant classicism, ripe red fruit, jam, toffee, chocolate and cocoa, aromatic herbs, cedar and spices.
Mouth: Well-structured, tasty, good balance and a good fruity sensation. Broad and elegant through the mouth. A ripe, deep finish. High quality aromatic aftertaste.

Pairing

Pulses, soup and broths, grilled meats/meat in sauces, roasts.
