ES-LRA-30-10

Rioja Gran Reserva, '904', La Rioja Alta

Tempranillo (90%) from vines over 60 years old planted in Briñas, Labastida and Villalba, and Graciano (10%) from our Montecillo vineyard in the municipality of Fuenmayor.

The grapes were collected in boxes and transported to the winery in refrigerated vehicles to preserve all their integrity. After gentle destemming and crushing, the
musts were put in stainless steel tanks where they underwent alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature for 17 days. Batches were selected and allowed to complete malolactic fermentation naturally over 78 days. In April 2010, the wine was transferred to 4-year-old American oak barrels (made in-house), where it stayed until April 2014. During ageing, the wine was racked every six months using traditional barrel-to-barrel methods. The final blend was bottled in November 2014.
