Description

Tasty and well structured reserve wine, made from the shoulders of the best bunches from the youngest vineyards aged between 25 and 40 years. - Winemaker's Notes

The young and creamy red 2013 Fincas de Ganuza was sourced from a challenging year that produced less concentrated, fresher and lighter reds. The nose is a combination of sweet spices and red and black fruit, a touch of licorice and a lactic touch. The palate is a little less concentrated, and the oak is still a bit noticeable. It has some austerity and finishes dryWA91

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
