Description

The richness and elegance of a Rioja wine

The estate

The history of CVNE or Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España began in 1879. This family winery was founded by two brothers in the Haro train station area of the Rioja region in Spain. The company's strategic location enabled them to successfully market the bodega's wines and facilitated the transport of wine barrels and the bottling process. Since then, the fifth generation has continued the drive forward the family legacy. The company has now become one of Spain's leading wine groups.

CVNE reigns over a vineyard of 545 hectares that spread over the exceptional terroirs of La Rioja Alta and La Rioja Alavesa.

The wine

Viña Real Gran Reserva is a Rioja wine made from vineyards located in the municipalities of Laguardi, Elciego and more recently Labastida. Located at an altitude of between 500 and 650 metres, these small plots are over 35 years old and enjoy a southern exposure.

The vintage

2016 was a year marked by a beautiful mild weather and a particularly hot and dry summer. Ripening was gradual and even until the harvest which took place between October 5 and 25, slightly later than in previous years.

Vinification and ageing

The hand-picked grapes are vinified in stainless steel vats, with regular delestage to ensure a fine extraction. Aged for a minimum of 24 months in French and American oak barrels (new and second fill). Hand racking every 5 months during the first year and more spaced out during the second year.

The blend

Tempranillo (95%)

Graciano (5%).

CVNE’s Viña Real Gran Reserva 2016: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour
Bright and lively, this wine showcases a beautiful ruby red colour and garnet highlights.

Nose
The intense nose blends fruity fragrances (black fruit, dried fruit) with delicious notes of coffee, spices, but also toast and balsamic, due to the ageing in barrels.

Palate
The smooth and refreshing palate reveals its fine tannins and structure throughout the tasting and leads to an intense and persistent finish.
