Description

This red reserve is characterized by its innovative method of extraction, unique system developed in the winery, using a special PVC bag to put a gently press of the skins of grapes avoiding the friction of the same and the oxidation of the wine. - Winemaker's Notes

The dark and opaque, almost black 2012 Trasnocho epitomizes the modern style of concentrated and generously oaked Rioja. However, in a warm and dry year like 2012, the wine feels fresher than the one from the previous year. The fruit is dark, and it has plenty of spices and smoke. The palate is full-bodied, and there are abundant but fine-grained and quite round tannins. There is stuffing and balance for a long and positive development in bottle.WA94+

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
