Vina Eguia Rioja Crianza 2008 750ml

Vina Eguia Rioja Crianza

The 2008 Vina Eguia Crianza is aged in American oak for 12 months. The nose demands coaxing from the glass, but it eventually offers a crisp, natural bouquet of dark berries, burnt toast and singed leather. The palate is very well-balanced, with lithe tannins that caress the mouth. The oak is seamlessly integrated towards the lingering, supple finish. This is a very well-crafted, natural Rioja. Drink now-2018.

The 2008 Vina Eguia Crianza, dark cherry in color, boasts a lovely bouquet of cherries, mature oak and hints of licorice. The palate is full, elegant and well balanced leaving a very pleasant, fresh sensation in the finish. It is the perfect wine for everyday drinking.

Selected grapes from Rioja Alavesa vineyards. Soils are a mixture of chalk, sand and clay. The vines have a medium age of 20 to 25 years and are grown using the traditional “gobelet” system. Fifteen days of fermentation and the maceration process is done in temperature controlled stainless steel vats with daily pumpovers to achieve the optimum color and tannin extraction. Malolactic fermentation is conducted in stainless steel tanks and then racked twice before going into oak barrels. The wine is aged in American oak for 12 months, with one racking.

Alcohol: 13.5%

This Crianza goes very well with beef, cured meats and hard cheeses. Ideal for Spanish “tapas” and all kind of appetizers.
