    Winemaker Notes

    It is a dark-cherry colored red wine, very intense in color, and with purple hints. In the nose, it shows very clean aromas of red and black fruits, strawberries, raspberries, cassis, very well balanced with creamy and pleasant toasted notes from the barrique. It also shows a slightly spicy touch of liquorice. In the mouth, it is rich, fruity with round and ripe tannins. It has good acidity, and shows nice notes of vanilla, smoke and coffee. A powerful wine but with a very elegant balance.

    Bodega Sierra Norte, Spain
    Bodega Sierra Norte was born in 1995 as three partners joined and decided to take over this project and start producing their wines known as Cerro BERCIAL. They produce red wines aged in oak barriques and young red and rosé wines. All the Bodega's wines are conventional and organic. The wood used in the oak barrels is a mix of American and French Allier oak. New wood each year is 40% of the total we use. The cellar, located in the town limits of Requena (Valencia) is 30 minutes by car from the capital of the province, Valencia, going towards Madrid. Traditionally, this area has produced wine for sale in large quantities in bulk and retail business, but recently some wine growers in this area have seen the importance of bottling and the big quality potential of the area, and have increased their production of quality bottled wines. These wines are, without a doubt, one of the top quality wines in the region and for sure one of the only organic quality cellars. Sierra Norte also wants to give the local variety, Bobal, a main role in its wines. It is blended mainly with Tempranillo, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.

    The cellar has also started producing organic wines in small quantities. At our vineyards, we grow the varieties Tempranillo, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Bobal in reds, and Macabeo, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in whites. Both the cellar and vineyards are ORGANIC-certified.

    Known for bold reds, crisp whites and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place primary emphasis on its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally hot and dry. In the center of the country lies a vast, arid plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought.

    Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache). Rioja also produces rich, nutty whites from the local Viura grape.

    Ribera del Duero is gaining ground with its single varietal Tempranillo wines, recognized for their concentration of fruit and opulence. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, specializes in bold, full-bodied red blends of Garnacha (Grenache), Cariñena (Carignan), and often Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate.

    Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
