Tasting note Vivanco Rioja Reserva
Beautiful, complex Rioja, full red in color, refined scent with ripe fruit notes, dosed oak and a light spiciness. The taste is full, round and balanced and ends with mild tannins.
Rafael Vivanco is named by English wine writer Tim Atkin MW as one of the ten best modern winemakers of the Rioja. His wines are flawless, have ripe fruit tones and Rafael is reluctant to use toasted new oak. Rafael learned his modern way of winemaking in Bordeaux, where he studied oenology and gained practical experience. His reserva is made as if it were a grand cru. The tempranillo and graciano grapes (10%) are picked by hand and on arrival in the cellar on a sorting belt, selected for a second time. Only the very best part of the harvest is lightly pressed. The juice then passes without harmful pumping, using gravity to the small French oak casks where fermentation begins. After both fermentations, the reserva matures for another 24 months on a mix of French and American oak and after bottling, the wine rests in the bottle for another 24 months before Vivanco sells the wine. A careful and costly way of working that delivers top quality Rioja.
