Berceo Crianza

D.O.Ca Rioja (Spain)

Wine making process

Grapes selected for their balance between freshness, structure and ripeness. Hand harvested then fermented at 82ºF with 20 days maceration and gentle pumping over 4-5 times daily. Malolactic fermentation in concrete tanks and ageing in French and American oak barrels for 12-14 months. Settling in concrete tanks.

Terroir

A blend of various varieties (Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano) grown in the villages of Baños de Ebro (Rioja Alavesa), San Asensio and Medrano (Rioja Alta). The old bush vines are low yielding, in well exposed sites with a mix of chalky and ferrous clay soils. The blend makes an elegant, medium bodied vibrant wine.
