Winemaker Notes

The 2008 has a dense purple-color with aromas of pain grille, mineral, Asian spices & assorted black fruits. The palate is big and structured.

Blend: 90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Fincas de Ganuza is a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano that is very balsamic with aromas of incense and autumn forest wrapped around a core of perfectly-ripened bramble fruit. It has a kind of wild character, is still a baby, and looks much younger than it is. The palate is medium-bodied with good weight of fruit and fine-grained tannins. There's a little less acidity and vivacity than I expected. I was gob-smacked when I read this wine matured in new oak barrels for 26 months as it doesn't show at all.

Wine Enthusiast
Ripe, concentrated aromas of plum and prune come with a horsey accent. This feels wide and a touch clumsy, but friendly. Mature, baked flavors of raspberry, blackberry, mocha and herbs finish long and solid, with a hint of tobacco.

Bodegas Fernando Remirez de Ganuza Winery Video
This Fernando Remirez de Ganuza's almost 60 hectares of parcels that have been acquiring are distributed in four localities of Alava Rioja: Samaniego, Leza, Elciego, and Laguardia.

In Remirez de Ganuza, one works with fifty hectares of tempranillo (90%) and graciano (10%) located in privileged enclaves of the Alava vineyard.

The deciding factors to obtain a great wine are: the habitat, the microclimate, the direction of the parcels, the low productivity of the stocks and teh age of the vineyard.

The winery is located in the same center of the beautiful town of Samaniego. The splendid big rambling house includes an apple of buildings and is equipped with modern reinforced concrete structures covered with stone of ashlar masonry of between about two or three hundred years of antiquity.

Tempranillo

View all products

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
