Rioja Bordón Crianza

CRIANZA

RIOJA BORDÓN HAS ITS OWN DISTINCTIVE STYLE THAT EPITOMISES THE RIOJA FLAVOUR. THIS IS THE INIMITABLE RIOJA BORDÓN, WHICH, ON ACCOUNT OF ITS HISTORY, HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO INCLUDE THE TERM RIOJA ON ITS LABEL AS A POINTER OF REFERENCE FOR QUALITY WINES.
GRAPE VARIETIES

Tempranillo and Garnacha.

WINEMAKING PROCESS

After selection, the grapes are destemmed and lightly crushed. Once the alcoholic fermentation has concluded, a secondary malolactic fermentation process takes place to lower the acidity of the wine. The wine is then transferred to medium-toast American oak barrels where it remains for 12 months, with racking taking place every 6 months.
