The Vina Real Crianza is an important wine for the CVNE group. They launched the wine in the 1920’s and at the time they were one of the pioneering wineries to use oak ageing for their Crianza. The Vina Real winery is in Laguardia, the heart of the Rioja Alavesa sub-region. The wine is made from 90% Tempranillo with the remaining 10% from: Graciano, Garnacha and Mazuelo. After 13 month in mainly American Oak the wine is bottled and further matured before release.

Harvest 2016 was very unusual: a very late harvest date, characterized by good weather and high temperatures, which provided excellent conditions for tasty, healthy and very clean fruit of good quality, colour and structure. The 2016 vintage was rated as very good by Rioja DOCa. 

Grapes were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 10-12 days with temperatures between 26-28°C. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine is placed in American and French oak barrels for 13-14 months.

Perfect with grilled and roasted red meats.
