Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The fruit-driven, ripe and heady 2019 Viña Real Crianza was produced with 90% Tempranillo and the rest between Garnacha Tinta, Mazuelo and Graciano from a vineyard in the Sonsierra zone (call it Rioja Alavesa if you like). It has 13.75% alcohol and a pH of 3.6 and is polished and easy to understand and like. It has plenty of tannins; it calls for food. The oak is soft and integrated. They produced 650,000 bottles of this wine, which is bottled in four different lots.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 14 months in French and American oak barrels.
Viña Real Crianza is an original red wine from the D.O.Ca. La Rioja. It has been produced by the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España, the CVNE group, which is made up of the wineries Cune, Contino and Viña Real.
This red wine is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo.
Viña Real Crianza is the ideal companion for dishes based on small game, red meats, or with rice and white meats, for example, a rice dish with rabbit or a rice dish with lamb a la Navarra. Delicious, believe us!
The grapes are harvested by hand and selected on arrival at the winery and subjected to the winemaking process.
The destemmed grapes are taken to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, where alcoholic fermentation takes place.
After malolactic fermentation, the wine is transferred to French and American oak barrels where it remains for 13-14 months. During this time the wine acquires the balanced aroma with which it is recognised, as well as its finesse and overall expression.
The ageing of this wine is special, as it is carried out in the Viña Real barrel room.
Viña Real Crianza is structured, round and with a good balance between fruit and wood, with its fine tannin, excellent acidity and balance. A wine that with its ample qualities is pleasant in the mouth and has a pleasant persistence.
A subtle, elegant wine
This is a historic crianza wine, a great wine that reflects the quality of La Rioja. It is a magnificent representative of Bodegas CVNE, one of the founding wineries in the production of Rioja wines and one of the great names on the Spanish wine scene. Viña Real Crianza hides aromas derived from a remarkable ageing process. It is a red wine with gastronomic versatility, fresh and long.
