Finca Torrea Red 2015
This wine has been made with grapes of the Tempranillo and Graciano varieties, from the old vineyard that surrounds the Torrea Estate, a place where the facilities of the Marques de Riscal wineries are currently located.Imguably the land is the classic clay-clay soil of Rioja Alavesa that has historically provided the best qualitative results. The harvest done by hand and in boxes of small capacity, passes through the selection tables, before proceeding to destemming and crushing. Then, the fermentation takes place in small Allier wood vats, at a temperature not exceeding 25ºC, with the intention of preserving the fruity characters to the maximum. The extraction is carried out with gentle overruns and a short maceration, with the aim of maintaining the finesse, elegance and freshness necessary to have a pleasant and persistent palate. After carrying out the malolactic fermentation, the wine remains in Allier French oak barrels for 18 months, and after a short refining period in the bottle, the wine goes on the market. It is a different style to the wines that Marqués de Riscal had been making traditionally.
