RIOJA BLANCO CRIANZA, HACIENDA GRIMON, RIOJA, SPAIN, 2018, 13%
Terroir-driven wines – family-owned – 23 hectares
Hacienda Grimón is run by brothers Paco and Eliseo. From their 25 hectare base in a secluded corner of the Rioja Alta, they produce organic wines that accurately reflect the subtleties of their family estate. The majority of their wines experience extended ageing, therefore great care is taken to ensure that all grapes are as healthy as possible. As a result, no herbicides or pesticides are used at any stage and hand harvesting is employed for all their vineyards.
The Crianza is produced following a rigorous fruit selection process from three different vineyard parcels. The wine is then aged for 16 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, ensuring that aromas of black fruits are backed up by notes of black pepper and sweet spices.
The ripe tannins and fresh acidity balance the richness of the fruit which results in an elegant and classy Rioja Crianza. A combination of dense, plummy fruit and a good tannic structure ensure that this is a Rioja that offers incredible value for money.
