Viña Arnáiz Reserva 2014

General Information

Wine type: Red

Grape: Tinta del País (Tempranillo), Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon (a great Spanish varietal with a French twist).

Ageing time: 36 months 

Vineyard

The Viña Arnáiz vineyards have been cultivated since the 12th century. With an area of 12,000m2, production and bottling capacity of 18 million bottles a year, and capacity for 10,000 American oak Bordeaux bottles, this winery was awarded best winery in Spain for 2 years running.

Winemaking

This wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months, during which 2 decantings are performed to help oxygenate the wine. After this period, the wine remains in the bottle for another 18 months to complete the ageing period. 

Tasting Notes:

With notes of wild fruit and spices, along with a vanilla base, the nuanced palate provides a pitch of intensity, allowing a fruity finish accompanied by the maturity of sweet tannins integrated in the wine’s structure, providing elegance and a long finish. 

Pairings

This wine pairs perfectly with red meats and roasts. We recommend uncorking or decanting for a while prior to tasting, to fully appreciate its virtues. 

We recommend serving between 16–18°C.
