Details

Produced by Remírez de Ganuza, Viña Coqueta is a single estate Spanish red wine made from a blend of Tempranillo and Graciano coming exclusively from the grapevines planted in Finca La Coqueta, located in Samaniego, the very heart of Rioja Alavesa.

Harvested by hand and selected on site, once in the cellar the grape bunches were first refrigerated for 24 hours. Then the upper grapes were separated from the lower ones (which are used for crafting the carbonic maceration wine Erre Punto). Fermented in stainless steel tanks and French oak vats, malolactic fermentation was carried out in new French (80%) and American oak barrels, where Viña Coqueta Reserva 2008 was aged for 26 months. Once bottle, this reserve red wine from Rioja was aged for a further 2 years in the bottle.

Decant 1 hour before drinking. Drink over the next 5 years.

18,010 bottles produced.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Viña Coqueta Reserva has a nice, bright cherry colour with some ruby glints.

Nose

Lively aromas of cranberries and blackberries over a spicy, delicately sweet background, with some hints of smoke, lavender wet earth and a delicately floral touch. Excellent blend of Tempranillo and Graciano.

Palate

This wine by the Remírez de Ganuza winery is meaty and savoury, with a smooth, velvety entrance and a perfectly achieved balance between fruit and oak. The finish is long and pleasant, with some remembrances of black fruit, cocoa and toast.

Our personal opinion

Elegant, pleasant, extremely gentle. Viña Coqueta Reserva 2008 pairs very well with meat and oily fishes.

    Been a fan of Fernado Remirez since I visited his winery and he showed us around. Painstakingly meticulous winemaker, his wines have great precision. Coqueta, it seems to me, has a livelier character than the rest, while keeping the age-worthiness. Superb.
