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. Hand harvested, principally from our vineyards in Rioja Alavesa. Following a short pre-fermentation maceration, fermentation was done at a controlled temperature to retain primary varietal aromas. The young wine was transferred to 225 litre american oak casks, where it remained for between 12 and 14 months, regularly racked, to create great finesse. The wine was then lightly fined using egg whites before bottling. The 'Viña Real Crianza' shows a full, morello cherry, ruby red colour with good intensity. It is rich, deep and balanced. On the palate it is well structured with plenty of fine, lingering rich fruit and a lively note of tannin.
