Product Description
Details

The remarkable Remírez de Ganuza Reserva is an indisputable classic of modern Rioja.

Made from a blend of Tempranillo (93%), Graciano (4%) and 3% Viura and Malvasía, this Spanish red wine was sourced from vineyards 60 years old on average.

The vines are planted in clay-limestone soils, scattered over several towns around the Sierra Cantabria mountain range.

Produced by Remírez de Ganuza, this Reserva red wine was vinified with extreme attention to detail. Fully destemmed and meticulously sorted, the grapes - selected only from the "shoulders" of the grape bunches - were fermented in 7,000 litre French oak vats.

The malolactic fermentation of Remírez de Ganuza Reserva 2014 took place in new French oak barrels. Once completed, the wine was aged for 26 months in the barrels and for a further 24 months in the bottle before its commercial release.

Decant this red wine from La Rioja a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Nose

Intense and impressively complex, this blend of Tempranillo and Graciano with Viura and Malvasía suggests some notes of toast, juicy aromas of black fruit - bilberries and mulberries - Eastern spices, Havanna cigars, dim smokey and balsamic nuances, underbrush, flowers and some earthy and mineral notions.

Palate

Lively and lush, this wine from bodega Remírez de Ganuza and is full of juicy wild berries, with exquisite cocoa notes, some wild berries, a bouquet of flowers, spices and some mineral undertones. Silky textured, with a superb acidity and some smooth tannins. Very long, delicately toasted finish.

As always, Remírez de Ganuza Reserva 2014 is elegant, age-worthy and deep. A truly great, modern-style Rioja.

I don't know why I have spent so much money and time hunting for Bordeaux and Burgundies when you can drink something this good for a fraction of the price.
