Winemaker Notes

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

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Viña Real has now it's own separate winery, but it's still the CVNE brand from Rioja Alavesa. The 2011 Viña Real Crianza, mostly Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano fermented in stainless steel, matured in barrel for a little more than one year before bottling. The wine is racked every 5-6 months. It has a very ripe nose with hints of raisins, plenty of plums and black cherries, a little decadent and baroque. The palate is ripe and tasty with balsamic, Mediterranean flavors that are round, lush and approachable.

Vina Real  Winery Image

Owned by the CVNE family , Viña Real dates back to 1920. Today this winery is not only a winemaking pioneer in ageing Rioja Alavesa but a timeless brand that has always remained faithful to its roots, with authenticity and sincerity at the fore.

Ever since then, a meticulous balance between tradition and modernity has defined the shape and content of Viña Real.

2004 saw the inauguration of the new Viña Real winery in Laguardia, where the whole process takes place from receiving the grapes to dispatching bottled wines.

Rioja Alavesa grapes are at the very heart of this winery. The winery’s name was inspired by the proximity of its vineyards to the old Camino Real. Clinging to this same patch of earth and blending into the Cerro de la Mesa hill is a monumental 30,000-square metre vat: this is the Viña Real building, an iconic design built in 2004 that masterfully blends the construction into the Riojan terrain.

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.
