Red Wine Sierra Cantabria Reserva 2014
Availability: In stock
The red wine Sierra Cantabria Reserva is produced by the prestigious Eguren family from over 30-year-old vines located in the town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, La Rioja
A varietal Tempranillo, the vineyards are farmed with minimal intervention and integrated production techniques.
The grapes were manually harvested and carefully selected. Once in the facilities of the Sierra Cantabria winery, they were destemmed and fermented using indigenous yeasts with periodic pump-overs.
After that, this Spanish red wine was macerated for 14 days and subsequently aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels, 20% new and 80% used ones. The wine was drawn off every 4 months.
Finally, Sierra Cantabria 2014 was further aged for a minimum of 24 months in the cellar before its release.
Aerate this reserva red wine 30 minutes before drinking.
The wine Sierra Cantabria Reserva is high ruby with a garnet rim.
This varietal Tempranillo is quite intense. Notes of forest berries, elegantly balanced with notes stemming from the oak ageing, such as toast, spices, tobacco, pepper, vanilla and clove.
Intense, well-structured and lush, this wine from bodega Sierra Cantabria has some ripe, velvety tannins and a very good acidity. Bilberries and mulberries, violets, dry earth and spices. Long, elegant finish with some toasted and earthy remembrances.
