Bodegas Amaren, Crianza, Doca Rioja, Spain, 2016
The grapes used to produce Amaren come from vines situated in the highest parts of the vineyards where the soil is poor, thus obtaining small bunches of grapes which allow for perfect ripening with highly concentrated nuances. Bodegas Amaren owns 22 hectares of more than 60 year old vines, and a further 30 hectares of vines aged between 30 and 60 years old, with low yields and are situated in some of the best plots in Rioja. The grapes used for Amaren Crianza are processed and aged separately to preserve the fruit of the Tempranillo and enhance the complexity of the Graciano
.A lovely ruby red colour, with a clean balsamic nose and nuances of plum and clean oak. Smooth, fruity and spice flavours with toasted oak in the background. Complex and structured. A pleasant finish with red fruits and a hint of eucalyptus.
