Product Description
Details

Crafted by the founder and current winemaker of Bodegas Beronia, Matías Callejo, Beronia Crianza is a great all-rounder from Rioja.

It is made from a blend of 94% Tempranillo, complemented with some Grenache and Mazuela (Carignan), coming from vineyards closely monitored by the winery.

This blended Spanish red wine was produced following the unmistakable "Beronia style", defined by a long maceration process.

During that operation, frequent pump-overs and punch-downs are performed in order to extract colour and aromas.

After that, Beronia Crianza 2018 was aged for 12 months in tanks and for another 12 months in combined oak barrels, the staves made of American oak, and the heads made of French oak.

Finally, this Rioja red wine was aged for 6 months in the bottle prior to its commercial release.

Appearance

The red wine Beronia Crianza is medium cherry with a violet rim.

Nose

This blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Mazuela smells of strawberries, cherries and blackberries, combined with aromas of chocolate, coffee, spices, and some mineral notes.

Palate
Fresh and gentle, this wine from Bodega Beronia (a brand of Grupo González Byass) is smooth, with ripe tannins and a well-balanced acidity. Black fruit, some toasted and smokey nuances, and dash of chocolate and coffee. Long, lively finish.
Our personal opinion

Substantial and easy-to-drink, Beronia Crianza 2018 is an amazing value from La Rioja.
