Finca San Martín Crianza Rioja (2013)

New

Medium-depth, cherry-red, with a pink rim; clean and bright. High aromatic intensity, with prevailing notes of ripe fruit, strawberries and redcurrants against a balsamic, aniseed, liquorice and cedar background from painstaking barrel ageing. Well-balanced in the mouth, with a pleasant structure and fine tannins leading to a fresh, agreeable finish. Lovely final aftertaste, with a background of ripe fruit and liquorice reinforcing the typical characteristics of this Rioja Alavesa wine.

    “The spirit of a unique land”

    This wine, made with Tempranillo, takes its name from the privileged state where it grows in Rioja Alavesa. A fresh, fruity and racy Crianza that is a loyal companion for every food experience.

    THE HARVEST

    The vintage was marked by heavy rains and low temperatures in spring. Good weather prevailed in September and October, allowing us to harvest our plots selectively, picking only those which reached just the right level of ripeness. The grapes arrived at the crush pad in great condition, with a good alcohol and acidity, pleasant tannins and a high aromatic intensity. Although the D.O.Ca. Rioja Control Board officially rated this vintage as ‘Good’, the wines faithfully reflect the personality of Finca San Martin.

    THE GRAPES

    100% Tempranillo from the plots which surround the Torre de Oña winery in Páganos-Laguardia, Álava.

    WINEMAKING AND AGEING

    Hand-picked and put into small boxes to avoid juice spoilage. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in tanks. It was aged for 16 months and hand-racked three times, using new American oak casks (60%) and two-year-old French oak casks (40%).
