Miguel Merino Rioja Unum 2002

Member Review by gabriellaopaz:

Inky dark red in color with a truly bizarre nose I've never experienced before showing candy grape juice, soy, chocolate and basalmic vinegar. Incredibly silky on the palate with good acidity and structure. This wine is odd! Really strange, but a flavor that I happily acquired quickly showing dark fruit, bitter chocolate, soy and prunes. Quirky wine but I love it!

All the grapes come from very old vines planted in bush formation between 1931 and 1963 in Briones. The vineyards are located in slopes facing South and South-west with low-yielding clay and calcareous soils, at an altitude of 550 metres. Almost all of them are Tempranillo, one of the grape varieties that best reflects the particular conditions of each parcel. We also work with a small vineyard planted with Graciano, a very hard-to-grow grape variety which is a great companion to Tempranillo for its tannins and vivacity. The picking is made by hand, using small boxes that will take the bunches to the vinification room without any damage to the fruit. Every single bunch of grapes is placed on the sorting table, where we inspect them all for quality and reject any which are not in a perfect state of ripeness or health. Read less
