• The soils of the Ribera del Duero soriana acquire prominence in the new image of Viña Gormaz

    Viña Gormaz, one of the brands part of the Viñedos y Bodegas Gormaz family, from Ribera del Duero, launches a new image that represents two significant differences in the province of  Soria, which are the altitude and the composition of the soil.  With this change, the winery highlights the differential value of the territory by indicating the differences in comparison with other zones: the altitude of the vineyards, the typicity and the composition of the soils, as well as the traditional working production in the land based on the age and the cultivation characteristics of the vineyards.

    At the essence of respect, the rythym and the life cycles that the nature gives are essential in the production of Viña Gormaz. Those reinforce a solid image of the dedication to the vineyard and the production of the wines to keep them loyal to the terroir. In this new design, the interpretation of the stratums of the soil plays a very important and main role. Through icons assigned to each type of soil, Viña Gormaz expresses a set of textures and sizes that identify each wine with the different types of terroir they are composed.

    In this way, in a dare and minimalistic design, sandy soils, clay, and pebbles textures are mixed in order to represent in the label the mix of soils from Soria. The concept of the terroir is valued in Viña Gormaz with the identity, character and expression of the main variety, Tinta el País (Tempranillo) in this area.

    Viña Gormaz, the details of the label

    The new labels of Viña Gormaz Young, Roble, Crianza and Verdejo have in common a design in relief, which trough the sense of touch emphasizes the characteristics of the soils of the vineyards where they come from. The Young is distinguished by sand and silt, which reflect the character of the tempranillo expressed in the terroir. The Roble, thanks to the mixture of clay and sand with a low amount of silt is the ideal combination for the development of the vineyard with this variety.  The elegance and structure of the Crianza is reflected in a black background which highlights the sum of sand, clay, rolling stones, minerals and multiple factors that enhance the aromas and the character of this Tempranillo with very low yields.

    The Viña Gormaz family is completed with a white wine from D.O. Rueda produced by Bodegas GarciGrande (also part of Hispanobodegas). The image is inspired by the characteristics of the Verdejo variety, as well as the composition of silt and clay bottoms soils that give rise to this fragrant wine with a varietal character typical from its area.

It is a factorial function that leads us to multiply 5x4x3x2x1 = 120, number of renques that we have in the estates of this crianza. This, together with the average of strains and their production, gives us the total bottles of the 2016 harvest of Valdelacierva Crianza.

    The label shows a simple and elegant line, but at the same time gives and informal and remarkable image, where we find the brand in the first place and a discreet 5! Renques, accompanied by a detailed representation of them, and the variety of wine “Solo Tempranillo”. Valdelacierva Crianza closes its image with soft lines where it gives prominence to the Denomination of Origin and the harvest. The perfect balance is achieved with the red capsule of short format or “cap” that leaves the quality of its natural cork.
