Once in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed, fermented and macerated for 10 days in stainless steel tanks using indigenous yeasts. After that, this Spanish red wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 15 months.
During that period, the wine was racked every 4-6 months. Finally, Eguren Ugarte Crianza 2016 was bottled and aged for a further 4 months in the cellar.
This is a savoury and approachable Crianza red wine from the DOCaRioja.
The red wine Eguren Ugarte Crianza has an intense, medium cherry-coloured robe with some reddish tinges.
Well-balanced and harmonious, this blend of Tempranillo & Grenache from La Rioja suggests remembrances of cranberries and raspberries, dim notes of spices and balsam, suggestions of aromatic herbs and hints of cocoa and charcoal.
Fresh, juicy and gulpable this red wine by Eguren Ugarte has a good volume and some mild tannins. Long, gently creamy finish with remembrances of spices and wild berries.
