Cherry colour, red fruits on the nose, especially raspberry. On the palate, it is crisp, refreshing and well balanced.
Saignée is applied to the red grapes. Careful maceration ensures aromatic freshness. Fermentation takes place without the presence of lees under controlled temperatures of no more than 20C in stainless steel vats for 10-12 days.
What is the Saignée Method? From the French word for “bleeding”, the saignée method is a by-product of making red wine where a small amount of juice is bled off early in fermentation. This helps increase concentration of the remaining juice in the same way you'd reduce a sauce to intensify flavours!
Rioja Baja is where it all began. Hacienda Marqués de la Concordia, an old sugar factory turned into a wine estate, is where the company keeps tradition alive while breaking new ground. They have experimental status in the vineyard, as it allows the producer to experiment with different grapes varieties. They allow some “international” grapes into their “creole” wines, which is what makes the wines innovative and exciting.
