SUZZANE perfectly expresses the characteristics that Garnacha offers us in La Rioja soils. It also reflects the respect we have for the old vineyards in the region.
3ha vineyard planted in Cárdenas (Rioja Alta) in 1903 at an altitude of 580 meters. Clay-ferrous soils with a little more than 10% stone, giving us low yields, around 2,000 kg per ha.
The different plots that make up this vineyard give us an extra complexity to the wine. Spontaneous fermentation with its own yeasts in used and open 500-liter French oak barrels, in amphoras and in concrete eggs. Malolactic fermentation in used barrels and concrete. Aged for 13 months in used French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes Suzanne
Suzzane is a very elegant wine, with a seductive velvet texture balanced with magnificent acidity and soft tannin. Aromas of black fruit, light hints of cinnamon, cocoa and elegant floral notes of violets, lavender ... leading to a fresh and floral mouth, with a concentrated and complex aftertaste
