Rioja Alta, Spain This wine is a blend of 89% Tempranillo and 11% Mazuelo. An old single vineyard called La Plana located at 485 metres altitude within the 300 hectare Ygay estate surrounding the winery in the southern point of Rioja Alta wine area. It is exclusively used for this gran reserva wine only, and only in the most excellent quality vintages. The ageing process is 30 months in 225 litre American oak barrels, with at least 10 months in new oak, and 36 months in bottle before release. Deep garnet colour. Restrained bouquet builds in the glass showing red fruits, leather and spice. On the palate it is full bodied with rounded ripe tannins. The flavour and texture given extra complexity and freshness by the Mazuelo. While it can be enjoyed now it will be a great vintage for long term maturing.
