Winemaker's Notes:

Cherry red in color with a garnet rim. Complex aromas with great intensity. The blackberry, licorice and black fruits really stand out and are mixed with chocolate and clove over a mineral base. A powerful wine, lively with a pleasant structure. On the mouth the licorice, chocolate and sweet spices stand out. A balanced and fresh wine.

Blend: 90% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo

About Bodegas Beronia:

Bodegas Beronia is found in the Rioja Alta area of the region which is situated to the west. In this area the soil is mainly calcareous clay soil and the vineyards are on average at an altitude of 600 metres. This area’s climatic infl uences are from the Atlantic however due to the Cantabria and Demanda mountain ranges it is sheltered from the worst Atlantic infl uences. It also boasts the Ebro river which creates a series of microclimates and provides much needed water for the vines. The situation of Bodegas beronia is considered to be a unique place for the creation of wines of high quality.

The grapes used at Beronia come from vineyards from within a tenmile radius of the cellars, ensuring that only the highest quality grapes enter the winery. A close relationship is maintained with the 150 vinegrowers who supply the grapes, guaranteeing that only the best quality grapes are selected and that the process is done so in the most natural way. Our technical experts frequently visit the estates to ensure that the use of fertilisers and chemicals are kept to a minimum. It is our priority to maintain healthy and high quality grapes.

Beronia, true to its tradition, produces a classic line of fi ne and well-balanced wines, crianza, reserva and gran reserva. In addition to these two white wines, a young Viura and a barrel fermented Viura. However they satisfy their innovative and avant-garde side with an interesting range of single variety wines, special production Tempranillo and Beronia Mazuelo reserva, making them the only winery in Rioja to produce a reserve wine from the Mazuelo grape.
