Winemaker Notes

Glass-Coating opaque purple color. Perfume floral, mineral, spice, and black fruit elements on the nose. Dense and packed, this structured but impeccably balanced offering will evolve for 10 years and have a 30+ year lifespan.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Nosing from one to the other, the 2008 Reserva has an almost identical bouquet to the 2007, with a coconut/vanilla tincture developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and, like the 2007, it handles the oak with style, thereby allowing the fruit to surface towards the finish with creme de cassis, dark cherries, soy and touch of orange blossom. This will be kept another three years in bottle, so it should turn out to be an excellent Reserva when ultimately released. Drink 2017-2028. Rating: 93+

Bodegas Fernando Remirez de Ganuza, Spain
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.

Rioja

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.
