Cune Viña Real Reserva 2004

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, grown in the Rioja Alavesa sub-zone are picked carefully by hand, when fully ripe, selecting only the healthiest bunches. On arrival at the winery, the grapes are cooled and macerated, prior to the alcoholic fermentation, which is carried out in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The length of time the fermenting juice is kept in contact with the skins is determined by daily tasting and analysis, until the desired levels of colour and structure are reached. The young wine is then transferred to a mix of American and French oak casks to mature, for up to 2 years, before being bottled. Once bottled, it will remain in our cellars to continue its maturation prior to release to the market. The 'Viña Real Reserva' displays a deep Ruby and cherry red colour , with the lightest hint of a terracotta edge. Good intensity on the nose, with ripe autumn fruits, warm spices and elegant toasty oak. The palate is rich, warming and velvet, with good acidity and noble tannin.
