Description

Black cherry and blood orange flavors are tangy and juicy in this bold red. Licorice, black pepper, woodsy and spicy notes add interest. Firm tannins keep the broad, round texture grounded, and tart, tangy acidity imparts liveliness. Drink now through 2027. 1,400 cases made. - WS92

The aromatic, exuberant and open 2012 Fincas de Ganuza, a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano from the Sierra Cantabria zone, was produced only with the grapes from the top half of the bunches, which were destemmed and fermented in small stainless steel and 7,000-liter oak vats. It matured in 5% American oak and brand new French barrels for 24 months. It has the unashamedly modern profile of the reds from Remírez de Ganuza, with savory notes intermixed with some lactic tones and a sleek, polished but juicy palate with plenty of fruit. This should be a crowd-pleaser. 45,000 bottles produced. It has been in bottle since April 2015.- WA92

This wine is crafted from the shoulders of the best bunches from vine stock varying in age between 25 and 40 years. It is aged in new French and American oak barrels.- Winemaker's Information

The Winery

Established in 1989, Bodegas Remírez de Ganuza, sprang from a personal bet made by its founder, Fernando Remírez de Ganuza.

From the outset the idea has been the same: to ensure a rigorous grape sorting process and then minimal interference in the preparation of the wine. In this way we can be as true as possible both to the vintage and the vineyard.

The business originally developed by Fernando in the 1970s and 1980s in Rioja Alavesa, involved the buying and selling of former vineyards. This meant he had the knowledge to select the most suitable plots in the region to carry out his new project.

Over the years, new techniques have been introduced for crafting and ageing wines making Remírez de Ganuza both innovative and pioneering producers. Innovation has been a particular feature with new improvements being incorporated regularly to raise the quality of the wines produced. These improvements include sorting tables, cold rooms and the use of new barrels for the ageing of the wines. The innovations may well have been widely adopted by other internationally renowned producers but this was certainly not the case when Remírez de Ganuza first used them. Other procedures like the bag used for the extraction of the Trasnocho wine or the machine used to wash the grapes in their own must are examples of the continuous process of innovation and the search for excellence which are hallmarks of Remírez de Ganuza.

In 2010 Jose Ramon Urtasun joined the enterprise started by Fernando thus setting in motion a new phase for Bodegas Remirez de Ganuza
