Description

CVNE Crianza Rioja presented in 37.5cl half bottles. This wine has been produced in every vintage since the company was founded.

CVNE (CUNE), or to give it its full name, the Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa. CVNE is based in the traditional neighbourhood of the station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region. Historically, some of the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves here in order to benefit from the ease of transport via rail to the port of Bilbao, the most efficient form of transport in those days. Today the winery is the hands of the fifth generation and has seven wineries in five Spanish wine-growing regions inluding CVNE, Imperial and Contino in Rioja and Virgen del Galir in Valdeorras.

The grapes for CVNE Crianza come from vineyards located in Rioja Alta, near the CVNE winery. This means that the grapes arrive intact at the winery to be processed in optimal conditions. Around 50% of the grapes are from CVNE’s own vineyards in Haro and nearby towns, while the rest are bought from grape growers in the area.

CVNE Crianza Rioja is blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha Tinta and Mazuela. The grapes are fermented in a 20,000-kilo stainless steel tank at a controlled temperature between 25 and 27ºC to preserve the fruit that characterises this wine. Remontage is performed every day and delestage twice during maceration. After 12 days in a vat, the grapes are pressed, and malolactic fermentation takes place in a tank. Subsequently, the wine is aged in American oak barrels for one year, during which it acquires its characteristic aromatic balance, fine character and overall expression.

Tasting Notes

CVNE Crianza Rioja DOC has a surprisingly aromatic nose with red fruits and liquorice, nicely balanced with the American oak flavours of vanilla, cocoa and caramel.

Food pairing.

Try pairing CVNE Crianza Rioja with traditional Spanish cuisine like tapas, chorizo, or grilled lamb. The wine’s acidity and tannins beautifully balance with the spiciness of cured meats, while its fruitiness harmonizes with the smoky flavors of grilled dishes. Additionally, the wine’s oak influence adds a delightful dimension when paired with aged cheeses (try with Manchego or Gouda) or roasted vegetables.
