Viña Real Crianza

VinaRealOur featured wine for July, Viña Real Crianza, is made from grapes grown in Spain’s Rioja Alavesa region. Crianza is first fermented in stainless steel, before moving to French Oak, then American barrels. It’s racked every 5 to 6 months throughout the aging process.

The winemaker is sure you’ll find a good balance of dark berry fruit and oak in both the nose and on the palate.

James Sucking awards Viña Real Crianza 2014 a score of 92 pts. Tasting notes from James Suckling include:

“A perfumed nose of dried-flower, blackberry and currant character. Cloves and cinnamon too. Full-bodied, very fruity and concentrated with soft ripe tannins and a long, fresh and lightly oaky finish.”
