A new, incredible, award winning red wine from Bodegas Clunia produced in partnership with the renowned Rioja Vega.

Bodegas Clunia

The Clunia vineyards are located in the province of Burgos, Castilla y León at an altitude of between 900 and 1,100 metres above the sea level. Historically they have grown two grape varieties; three hectares of Syrah, and 10 hectares of Tempranillo, however, they have now added Malbec to their repertoire. The organic composition of this land is very poor, these are limestone, clay and sandy soils with pebbles and limestone loames which allow for an optimal drainage, thus limiting production considerably –between 3,000 and 4,000Kg/hectare. The singular character of this terroir results in wines with a unique personality, only changing slightly according to the subtle variations determined by the soil of each vineyard.
Intense aromas of black fruit, blueberries, blackberries and ripe cherries together with subtle hints of cocoa and finely toasted oak. Full of rich red fruit which literally explode in the mouth, with great structure and balance, this wine is well rounded with elegant tannins and a long, lingering fruity finish

Manual harvest with triple selection. Pre-fermentation maceration at very low temperature. Fermentation with selected Autochthonous wild yeasts sourced from the vineyard itself. Aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
