Winemaker Notes

This wine shows shades of medium to deep shiny cherry colour on a purple background. To the nose, intense aromas of ripe fruits (blackberries, blackcurrants) stand out, complemented with subtle hints of oak. To the palate, it shows structured and round with a good integration of fruitiness and oakiness. The aftertaste is marked by very well balanced tannins as well as by persistent spicy, toasty and balsamic aromas. A long stay in bottle is the finishing touch to this Rioja Alavesa wine's character.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Viña Real Crianza, from a very dry, early harvest, feels fresher than the 2011. It's a similar blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha Tinta with Mazuelo and Graciano fermented in stainless steel and matured in barrel for 14 months. The wine was about to be bottled and showed really young with both ripe fruit and plenty of spices, hints of leather, fountain pen ink, black licorice and aniseed over a core of very ripe, showy fruit. It has a lush texture, still a bit too young with some tannins that should get polished with a little bit of time in bottle. However, this wine will not be sold before until the end of 2015. At this price level the quality is outstanding. 900,000 bottles of this wine will be produced.

This is from CVNE’s winery in Laguardia, focused on fruit from Rioja Alavesa. It presents cool red fruit and black tea–scented tannins, with oak influence that comes across in notes of tree bark and campfire smoke. The persimmon scents have a funky edge, an intriguing note of complexity in the finish. For grilled lamb kabobs.Europvin USA, Van Nuys, CA

Cvne, is situated in Rioja in the traditional neighborhood of the station, where the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves, for the main reason of transporting their goods to the port of Bilbao.

In 1879, two brothers decided to set up a business in the recently flourishing trade of the wine business. C.V.N.E., Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) or la Cuné, as it is commonly known in Haro, was created. This cellar still reflects the origins of the company and is kept in the traditional neighborhood of the Haro station.

The Cune winery in Haro, is made up of a group of buildings, mostly from the 19th century and arranged around a courtyard surrounded by pavilions for the purpose of wine production, aging, and bottling.

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.
