Product Description
Details

Produced by the prestigious Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE), the red wine Viña Real Crianza is made from 90% Tempranillo, complemented with Mazuela (Carignan), Grenache and Graciano.

The DOCa Rioja regulatory board officially classified the 2018 vintage as "Good".

The grapes were manually harvested, destemmed and cold-macerated to preserve their aromatic compounds. Then this Spanish red wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

After the completion of malolactic fermentation, Viña Real Crianza 2018 was transferred into American and French oak barrels, where it was aged for 14 months.

We suggest pairing this Rioja red wine with red meat dishes and stews.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Viña Real Crianza is low ruby with a reddish rim.

Nose

Intense aromas of blackberries, raspberries and cherries. This blend of Tempranillo, Grenache, Mazuela and Graciano suggests subtle wooden notes, particularly sweet spices and balsam, and even a hint of tobacco leaf and pine resin.

Palate

Good balance between fruit and oak. This Crianza red wine from the well-known Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España (CVNE) shows a classic Rioja character, with mild tannins, crisp acidity and a long finish, with some spicy and balsamic remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Round and well-balanced, Viña Real Crianza 2018 never fails to deliver. A good everyday Rioja.
