    El Coto 2014 Crianza, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, Magnum, 13% vol, 150cl

    RJ27

    El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from modest beginnings into one of the best known Rioja producers. Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. They also source grapes from all three areas, but mostly from Rioja Alavesa. Head winemaker Cesar Fernandez oversees production, starting with hand-picking into 350 kg crates to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Modern and intelligently designed, the emphasis in the winery is on temperature control and gentle handling of the grapes.

     

    100% Tempranillo from low yielding vines from each of the three sub zones of the Rioja: Baja, Alta and Alavesa.

     

    The Tempranillo grapes are fermented in El Coto’s  Oyón cellar in large, temperature controlled stainless steel vats that are fitted with advanced technology for the strict control of fermentation and maceration temperatures and colour extraction. The aim, to achieve the right balance between structure and balance in the wines.

     

    The wine is then aged for a minimum 12 months in selected 225 litre, American-oak barrels and then for at least 6 months in bottle before release.

     

    Bright ruby-red in colour, the fresh fruit aromas are preserved on the nose together with typical liquorice aromas from the oak and hints of vanilla. In the mouth good balance. Silky, velvety with good intensity.
