ANA DE ALTUN 2019
Iker and Alberto are the passionate new generation of winemakers of a family who have been making wine decades.Ana de Altún is made from Viura and Malvasía grapes from the oldest vineyards located in Baños de Ebro. A privileged environment, with calcareous clay soils that provide limited production but excellent quality. The grapes are manuaklly harvested.
From these grapes the flower must of the highest quality is extracted without prior pressing. Fermentation takes place in new French oak barrels, at a temperature of 15ºC, to maintain the fresh and fruity character of the grape.
GR99 2019 PRIMERA IMPRESIÓN
Carlos and Ana are the creators of this exciting project. The Third generation of a long legacy of winegrowers in San Vicente de la Sonsierra. It is believed that this area holds some the most valued vineyards in the DOCa Rioja, due to its location in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria. Its poor soils buffered by notherly winds yield the most spectacular grapes in the region.
PRIMERA IMPRESIÓN is the pure expression of tempranillo, a young wine from old vines, from which you can taste the very essence of the grape. Aged in large oak vats for 3 months, it preserves all the freshness and fruit of the young wine, which is what Ana and Carlos most enjoy.
THE ESQUIRLA DEL BARDALLO 2015
Carlos Sánchez, Javi García and Nacho Jiménez started this adventure from an old vineyard located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in a place known as Bardallo. Here the climate is cooler and with a little more rain than other parts of the Sonsierra, which allows the production of very fresh wines with a more balanced maturation.
The vineyard is around 35 years old and follows biodynamic farming protocols. The manual harvesting fruits an exceptional grape for an expressive wine with personality. The varieties are mostly Tempranillo and a small amount of Viura that is fermented together with 25% of the stem and native yeasts to boost this wine’s complexity. The malolactic and ageing takes place in used French oak barrels for 12 months.
