On the awarded Hispanobodegas wines
Anier Vendimia Seleccionada 2015 is a limited edition wine that is elaborated from the oldest and lower yield. After the malolactic fermentation done in new French Oak barrels, the wine is aged in French Oak barrels (80%) and American (20%), new (80%) and first use for 14 months, being then rounded in the bottle for at least 12 months. Limited edition of 11,646 bottles.Bright and intense cherry red color.Great aromatic complexity, highlighting the presence of ripe fruit and mineral essences. Pleasant, velvety and balsamic ripe red fruit feeling along with elegant ripe tannins, that are rounded and perfectly integrated with a flavourful finish and a nice long aftertaste.
Valdelacierva grano a grano is the latest added wine to the winery. A special product, featuring wines that are born from the terroir, with microvinifications in large barrels differentiated by estate andageing process in French oak.In this way, only small-scale productions, which the land produces with each vintage, come onto the market. This is how Valdelacierva Grano a Grano (or grain by grain) is born; in essence it emerges from the “La Botija” estate with its own unique characteristics -a harvesting process that begins out in the estate, destemming grape by grape and grain by grain in the winery- and eventually grows into a wine.
With a very attractive dense cherry red colour, it has an intense nose of red and black fruits with milky undertones and a subtle spicy touch, characteristic of a good mature tempranillo with cocoa and toffees. A very complex wine on account of its ageing in large French oak barrels, powerful and velvety on the palate with an agreeable and inviting persistence.
