  • Rioja Reserva Seleccion de la Familia 2008, Bodegas Luis Canas

    Rioja Reserva Seleccion de la Familia 2008, Bodegas Luis Canas

    A deep red, garnet colour.  The nose is an intoxicating mix of spices - cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves - with fruit notes of plums and figs.  It is rich on the palate with excellent structure and vibrant acidity.  Surprisingly fresh, despite a relatively high alcohol (14.5%), elegant and a nice texture to the tannins - a gentle grip.  

    The grapes for this wine, 85% Tempranillo and 15% other varietals from 45 year old vines, are taken to sorting tables after harvest to ensure ony the best grapes are selected for pressing.  The fermentation commences in stainless tanks for about 7 days, followed by 11 days maceration and the malolactic fermentation in barrel.  The wine is then ages for 12 months in French oak and then a further 12 months in American oak barrels.
