2000 Vintage

 

D.O.Ca: Rioja Spain
Grape Variety:
 Tempranillo (30%), Garnacho (60%) and Viura (10%) all from our own vineyards

Characteristics of the vintage:

Recorded by The Regulating Council as GOOD. There was a frost on March 30th that got to 2 degrees below cero. However it didn’t affected to the total quantity of the Harvest. There was as well another frost on April the 6th but didn’t damage either. Therefore, we harvested 995.044 kilos in our four vineyards. This was considered a record in quantity. In relation to quality for us it was a very good year. We started the harvest in Viña Gravonia in advance to the average of Rioja: September 28th while the normal would have been October 12th. Harvest was not easy since the maturation of the fruit was irregular so lasted until November the 5th. 

Tasting notes:

Colour: Onion skin, velvety, hints at becoming tawny. Nose: Fresh and persistent.Taste:Smooth and fresh with body and complexity due to barrel ageing.

Gastronomy:

This versatile wine will complement any dish, especially in the summer, due to its freshness. It goes very well with spicy and hot food; perfect with cold meats and Spanish sausages.  Many gastronomes have commented that it combines very well with Indian, Mexican and Chinese-style food.
