Marqués de Terán Reserva 2012 Rioja

00230212

Rioja is currently a major driver behind the outstanding progress made by Spanish producers at domestic level and internationally. This is understood from the first sip when you try Marques de Teran. Reserva is an example of a renovated style of the most elegant, velvety and round Rioja wines. Teran have respected the character of the local Tempranillo red grapes without overdoing on extraction, body or tannins and then refined them through enough maturing in oak without exaggerating the toasted oak contribution. The resulting bouquet simply excels.

Winemaking:
Lime and clay soil with an average altitude of 700m. Hand picking of grapes using 17kg boxes. The entire harvest goes through screening. Destemming without crushing the grapes. Pre-fermentation cryomaceration between 5 ° C and 8 ° C for 6-7 days. Alcoholic fermentation at 27 ° C for 22 days.
