ABANDO CRIANZA 750ML
Country Of Origin: Spain
Wine made in exceptional vintages from tempranillo grapes growing in four particular vineyardsin Gimileo, in the heart of the Rioja Alta. On their arrival at the bodega the grapes are lightly destalked in the traditional way. Temperature-controlled fermentation takes place in stainless-steel tanks with over-sized entrances. The fermenting wine is macerated with manual pumping-over until it arrives at its maximum potential for-crianza- ageing, first in French oak barrels for 13 months and a further 2 months in American oak. As the wine has not been filtered at any stage, some sediment may occur in the bottle as a result of its natural state.
Dark black-cherry red with a slight tawny rim. An intense nose with touches of candied orange peel, aromatic herbs, black fruits and medicinal hints. Full-bodied in the mouth with some richness of texture, good acidity, warming and intense. Medicinal back-taste. A wine with great balance and presence.
