Winemaker Notes

Maria Larrea

CVNE

by Maria Larrea
The Tempranillo grapes for CVNE Reserva Especial 2016 came from our vineyards around Villalba, Briones and Torremontalbo, and which are over 40 years old. 2016 began with a warm, dry winter followed by an initially rainy spring and late-September rainfalls, creating good ripening conditions for the grapes. Rigorous work in the vineyard followed by hand harvesting with exhaustive two selection rounds, ensuring the collection of great quality grapes. To ensure gentle handling, the grapes were fed by gravity to French oak vats for the alcoholic fermentation. Once completed, the wine was then aged in French and American oak barrels for 24 months, followed by another 24 months bottle ageing in our century-old cellars until being released to market. Smooth, tasty and with a great aging capacity.
