Cune Vina Real Crianza 2004
from Rioja, Spain
Viña Real was developed by Cuné in the 1940s. Sixty years later, Cuné took the decision to finally give Viña Real its real home, where not only is
the wine produced but also aged and bottled. Viña Real is located on the "Cerro de la Mesa" hill, Rioja Alavesa. The soils of this area are composed
of the best properties for the growing of the Tempranillo grape variety together with an optimum microclimate. The vineyards run from the
Cantabria mountains all the way to the river Ebro, with southern exposed slopes. José Ryan Murua is the resident winemaker of Viña Real, a connoisseur
of the region and direct descendent, giving him knowledge and an advantage to source grapes of excellent quality.
Blend: 90% Tempranillo; 10% Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha
Full, morello cherry, ruby red, good intensity. Ripe autumn red and purple fruit, raspberries. Well structured on the palate with plenty of fine, lingering
rich fruit and a lively note of tannin. The finish is elegant and long.
"Deep red. Ripe blackberry, cherry and plum on the nose, with gentle baking spice and forest floor notes adding complexity. Sweet dark fruit flavors are deepened by a subtle vanillin oak quality, which adds structure. Finishes fresh and juicy, with very good length."
