Burgundy red color, clean and bright with a deep intensity. In the nose, it is long and intense with aromas of red mature fruits well combined with nuances of toffees, spices and smoked from the barrel. In the mouth, it is a long and well structured wine where the same hints already found in the nose appear, complex traces of very mature fruit and oak.
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.
The wine is aged in new single-use French and American oak barrels for an average of 22 months, with manual racking taking place every 4 months in the first year. Once bottled, the wine is aged in the Viña Real cellars for a minimum of one and a half years to develop a rounded and complex flavour before being released onto the market.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, veal, and poultry dishes.
