Cune Pagos de Vina Real 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

C.V.N.E., or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa, their aim was to capitalize on the flourishing new trade in wine. C.V.N.E. is based in the traditional neighbourhood of the station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region. Historically, some of the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves here in order to benefit from the ease of transport via rail to the port of Bilbao, the most efficient form of transport in those days. The grapes are entirely from our own vineyard plots around the new Viña Real Winery between Laguardia and Logroño. Grapes are specifically selected firstly in the vineyard, followed by a table selection in the winery to give us the high quality fruit for this special wine. The grapes are only Tempranillo, brought to the winery in small plastic boxes, and fermented in small oak vats, to give us optimum control over the fermentation. Malolactic is carried out in small, new french oak 225 litre casks, to give Pagos de Viña Real its specific personality. The 'Pagos de Viña Real' is bright, lively cherry red, with subtle hints of youthful violet. It has wonderful aromatic intesity, dominated by ripe, dark fruit, sloes and brambles with some woodland berries. There is also a light toasty note with some elegant balsamic undertones from the barrel maturation. This wine is full and powerful in the palate, with ripe, fine tannins, which will hold the wine in balance for many years. It is complex and full , balanced, and elegant; a supreme expression of Tempranillo and Rioja alaversa.
