Tasting Notes

Exceptional Crianza from the Gembres vineyard showing all the Rioja Alta freshness we've come to expect from the high-altitude region. Expect red berries, savoury fruits of the forest and some lovely baking spice, with some oak lift from its time in barrel. A very good wine layered with delicious complexity and just starting to show some age.

"The textbook 2019 Crianza was produced with 93% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha and 2% white Viura and bottled at 13.5% alcohol, reflecting a slightly warmer and more powerful year. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and fiberglass tanks for eight days and matured in used barrels (70% American, the rest French) for 24 months. It has notes of wild berries, herbs and spices, with character and typicity, and a medium-bodied palate with a velvety texture and fine tannins."

The Producer

Bodega Akutain

Bodega Akutain’s history begins in the early 1970’s with the small family property’s founder, Juan Peñagaricano Akutain. Señor Akutain forged bonds with the families behind some of the Rioja region’s most storied traditionalist estates, including CVNE and La Rioja Alta.

After many years spent visiting the cellars, studying local vineyard techniques, and drinking every bottle of Rioja he could lay his hands on (all the while saving his earnings), Akutain was ready to plant his own vineyards.

He spent a few years searching for the perfect site and finally, in 1975, he found his dream property located just west of the village of Haro, the epicenter of Rioja.
