The grapes were picked by hand and traditionally vinified. Destemmed and gently crushed, they were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then, 60% of the red wine Finca San Martín Crianza 2018 was aged in new American oak barrels, and 40% of it was aged in 3rd year French oak barrels, for over a period of 16 months.
During the process, this wine from bodega Torre de Oña, a brand of Grupo La Rioja Alta, was racked 3 times. Finally, it was bottled in June 2020.
Fresh and lively, this is a very versatile Crianza red wine.
The wine Finca San Martín Crianza is cherry red, with a garnet rim.
Well-defined, straightforward aromas of blackcurrants and mulberries, typical of a varietal Tempranillo, underscored by hints of liquorice, ground coffee and cocoa.
This wine from Torre de Oña is fruit-driven and gently spicy. It shows great drinkability, with smooth tannins and a crisp acidity. Long finish with some balsamic and spicy remembrances.
