Maroon color with nuances of cherry and hugh color layer. Very elegant and intense on nose with spicy notes, aromas of cocoa, vanilla and fine wood in which we appreciate a nice touch of ripe fruit in the aftertaste. A very wide wine in the mouth with a great structure and potential. It is noticed a noble and structured tannin. It is a complex, great wine, long in the mouth.
Rioja Alavesa grapes are at the very heart of this winery. The winery’s name was inspired by the proximity of its vineyards to the old Camino Real. Clinging to this same patch of earth and blending into the Cerro de la Mesa hill is a monumental 30,000-square metre vat: this is the Viña Real building, an iconic design built in 2004 that masterfully blends the construction into the Riojan terrain.
Ageing is carried out in new single-use barrels, where the wine remains for an average of 24 months, with manual racking taking place every 4 months in the first year and less regularly in the second year. The wine is clarified prior to bottling to achieve a cleaner, smoother and glossier product. Once in the bottle, the desired roundness will be acquired within a minimum of 3 years. It will reach its prime many years later.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, veal, and poultry dishes.
