Tierra Rioja Alavesa Crianza 2017




A premium Crianza that is a terrific ambassador for the rainy Basque subregion of Rioja Alavesa. Robust and characterful with a deep colour and brash nose of sweet spice (clove, cinnamon), raspberry jam, roasted coffee and leather. Fleshy, open and opulent style, the palate is full bodied but immaculately smooth, with silky tannins and lush notes of mulberry and sandalwood.

This 100% Tempranillo is fermented in steel then aged for 12 months in American and French oak barrels.

  • Ripe, toasty, smooth
  • 750ml
  • 14% Alcohol

Producer: Tierra y Vino

With ancestors from Labastida and San Vicente and the proud emblem of their father Fidel as their muse, the wines of family collective Tierra y Vino are grown in thirty hectares facing the slopes of the Toloño mountain. The range of varieties grown on the vineyards, some of which are a hundred-years-old, are Tempranillo, red and white garnacha, viura, graciano and malvasia, which is grown in the oldest vineyards. Underneath the main winery based in the old Jewish neighbourhood in Labastida, there is a curious network of four different caves joined together, dating from 1400-1500 where the wines rest peacefully in 500 litre oak casks with the temperature and humidity constantly maintained the whole year round.
