RIOJA BORDÓN GRAN RESERVA

RIOJA BORDÓN GRAN RESERVA

Grape Varieties: Tempranillo, mazuelo and graciano.

Winemaking process: The must was fermented with the grape skins, and was stirred several times a day (this improves the extraction of colour and a constant temperature.) Fermentation lasted 10 days and the wine was left in contact with the grape skins another 7.

Aging: Aged in American oak barriques of medium and intense toast for 36 months. Once bottled, it was aged for a further 24 months in our cellars before its commercialization.

Tasting: Ruby with tile red hues, it showcases elegant aromas of spice and tobacco leaf. Unctuous, silky and round on the palate, its spicy ripe red berry complexity adds elegance and a savoury maturity to its long finish.

Food Paring: red meat stews, game, strong and spiced cured cheeses.

Alcohol content: 14%

Serving temperature: 16/18ºC
