Finca Allende Rioja 2006

Finca Allende Rioja 2006

The wine is stainless-steel fermented for approximately 22 days then transferred to 98% new French Allier and 2% American oak barrels where undergoes malolactic fermentation and aged for 14 months. The wine is lightly fined and then bottled unfiltered.

The family's estate of 135 acres (56 ha) is in Briones. The vineyards are 1,440 to 1,680 ft. in elevation (480-560 m). The vines are planted in calcareous red clay and gravel which dates from the quaternary period, located on the 2nd and 3rd terraces of the Ebro River. The dual expositions of the vineyards result in two distinct microclimates. The vineyards that face north-northwest produce grapes that are higher in acidity and give structure to the wine. The vineyards that face south-southeast produce grapes with ripe fruit aromas.
