La Rioja Alta Tempranillo Blend Rioja Viña Alberdi Reserva 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, with temperatures controlled to a maximum of 30°C. The wines are then transferred into 100 year old large wooden vats, where they slowly undergo malolactic fermentation. After what can be as much as 9 months in vat, they are moved into 225 litre American oak barrels for extended cask ageing. While in barrel, the wines are racked every 6 months, ensuring not only sanitary control, but also a short period of beneficial contact with air.
