Finca San Martín

“The spirit of a unique land”

This wine, made with Tempranillo, takes its name from the privileged state where it grows in Rioja Alavesa. A fresh, fruity and racy Crianza that is a loyal companion for every food experience.

THE HARVEST

After a growing cycle with very favourable weather, our vineyards showed excellent canopy development and condition at the end of veraison, pointing to a top-quality vintage. Meticulous care and the work carried out throughout the year in our vineyards, particularly green pruning and cluster thinning operations, allowed us to make this new Finca San Martín with an excellent balance of alcohol content, acidity, aromas and polyphenols.

THE GRAPES

100% Tempranillo from the plots which surround the Torre de Oña winery in Páganos-Laguardia, Álava.

WINEMAKING AND AGEING

Hand-picked and put into small boxes to avoid juice spoilage. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in tanks. It was aged for 16 months and hand-racked three times, using new American oak casks (60%) and two-year-old French oak casks (40%).

TASTING

Medium-high depth, intense cherry red, with a clean, bright pink rim. The nose stands out for its intense aromas of red blackberries, wild strawberries and hints of underbrush set against a balsamic background of aniseed, sweet liquorice, cinnamon and cedar to round off a fine bouquet. Very noticeable velvety texture in the mouth, with well-balanced acidity and elegant, pleasant tannins, giving way to a fresh aftertaste in which the nuances of ripe fruit and liquorice showcase the typicity of this Rioja Alavesa wine.
