Finca Manzanos Graciano Rioja

On the border between Rioja and Navarra, Victor Manzanos carries on the work of the four generations before him.

Adding in significant amounts of ambition and energy, Victor Manzanos is at the forefront of the new Rioja - championing a modern interpretation of its varieties through his wines. As a grower, Victor is keen to prove that Rioja Oriental (formerly known as Rioja Baja) has its own distinct character and should not be judged as inferior to Rioja Alta or Alavesa - just different. With brands also in Navarra, Victor and winemaker Borja are creating wine that is prized and cherished, from old vines growing on poor chalk and limestone soils which give wild berry and cassis flavours to the reds.

Vineyards

350ha of vineyards are planted on clay-limestone soil at an average height of 400m above sea level. Meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards, coupled with the extreme climate, offer the perfect conditions for the production of great wines. Grapes are all hand-picked in early October.

Vinification

Fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature with 3 weeks of maceration. The wine is then transferred to 70% French and 30% American 225l Barrels for a period of 6 months.

Tasting Notes

Cherry red colour, intense and bright. Aromas of black fruit, ripe red fruit with notes of vanilla from the oak barrel. Perfect balance between freshness and acidity. Perfectly integrated tannins from the wood aging.

This wine finds its place with chorizo, lamb and hearty stews.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
