Alfar Vendimia Seleccionada, DOCa Rioja, 2016, Bodegas Valdelacierva

Lot: 1272 Supplier: VINO SELECCION Country/Region: Spain/Rioja Major Grape: Tempranillo

Alfar Vendimia Seleccionada 2016 is an intense wine with good depth and elegance, requiring some cellaring before it reaches its optimum for drinking. On the nose, black fruits, vanilla, nutmeg and cloves give a warm and rich impression. On the palate, it is medium bodied with some grippy tannins, red berry fruits and sour cranberry flavours. Bodegas Valdelacierva lies in the heart of Rioja Alta at Navarette and has 200 hectares of vineyards in small plots between 25 and 130 years old. In this case, grapes were cultivated on 40-year-old bush vines cultivated around Briones and Baños de Ebro. After maceration for three days, wines were fermented then racked into new French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and spent 12 months maturing in barrel.
