Amaren Crianza

Spain
DOC Rioja
75cl.
Alc. 14.5º
Year: 2015
Sugar: 1 - 2gr/L
GRAPES: 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano.
AGED: The wine is cask aged for 12 months in 50% new, American-oak barrels and 50% in French-oak barrels used for a second vintage.
Bodegas Amaren, created by Juan Luis Cañas (Bodegas Luis Cañas) as a tribute to his mother, are known for their modern-style wines which is also the case of this new Crianza. The wine is truly attractive, transmitting the finesse and elegance of the tempranillo variety and the fresh, delicate fruitiness of the garnacha. A balanced combination leaving a smooth, attractive and tasty wine. I think I can say that they have achieved what they aimed for: to make a “DELICIOUS” wine.

GRAPE VARIETIES
Made from 85% tempranillo and 15% garnacha grapes, from vines with an average age of 35 years.
BOUQUET
On the nose the fruit character of the wine is very dominating, with floral nuances and strawberry toffee notes. Extremely attractive.
PALATE
What your nose has just experienced will stay with you all through the tasting of this wine. The wine shows great body but with an added elegance, enhanced with a beautiful balance between fruit and oak ageing. It has a long finish leaveingyou with a very pleasant taste of red fruits in your mouth. The typical taste of the best garnachas from the Rioja Alavesa is quite noticeable.
VITICULTURE

With a unique microclimate, the vineyard honors the winemaking tradition of the region by offering low production, bunches and grapes of small size and excellent quality.

Its department of viticulture is key to getting things rolling, all of them true artisans of the vineyard, work meticulously to maintain control over each plot. Given the characteristics of the vineyard, all the work is done by hand and in some cases, with animal traction.

It is about nurturing the land in the most natural way possible and following the guidelines of a rational viticulture to preserve the great diversity of animal and plant species that populate each plot and respecting the vineyard and its surroundings, in order to collect healthy grapes by hand and produce healthy wines.

WINEMAKING

The harvest is made in the month of October. The grapes harvested in boxes enter Bodegas Amaren and go directly into cold storage where they remain overnight at 6 degrees. The objective is to produce a pre-fermentative intracellular maceration in the grapes, which will help to extract their primary aromas as much as possible.

All the grapes that enter Bodegas Amaren go through the double selection table of bunches and grains. With AMAREN, Juan Luis Cañas chooses to go back to the origins of his roots, and elaborate the wines in concrete tanks, as was done in the days of Ángeles.

The deposits that are currently used in the cellar are of small capacity (15,000 L), fully restored with epoxy resin, and a temperature control system. The concrete protects the wines from thermal shocks, allows a greater extraction of the fruit, and a natural stabilization for the wine.
