Beronia Crianza Rioja
The grapes for this wine were collected during the beginning of October. Following harvest, the grapes underwent cold maceration for a few days in order to extract aromas and colour but not tannins. Alcoholic fermentation took place at low temperature of less than 26ºC with periodic pumping over. The wine was then aged in mixed oak barrels made of American staves and French tops for 12 months gaining both vanilla notes from the American oak and spice from the French oak. The wine was bottled in September 2017 after cold stabilization and kept for 3 months in bottle before being released.
Nose: Fresh on the nose with herbaceous aromas of thyme and rosemary but also displays fruity notes such as cherry and blueberry.
Palate: On the palate, it is equally complex, with sweet flavours of vanilla and milk chocolate, from the American oak, standing out.
Finish: Pleasant, full-bodied with a very long finish.
