Coordenadas de Aradón DOCa Rioja 2016

28.70

Grape variety:
100% Tempranillo from 100-year-old vines.

Aradon was a village which existed in Roman times but which mysteriously disappeared. Aradon was situated at the top of a plain with an altitude of 550 m, called “La Mesa” (The Table), which nowadays is occupied by vines of up to 90 years old, belonging to the winery. From 1957 onwards and continuing to the present day, in the village of Alcanadre, which is located 36 Km east of Logroño, vinegrowers, from Alcanadre, have chosen to pay tribute to Aradon by naming their wines after it. These wines are elaborated with fruit coming from ancestral vineyards, grown with care and expertise by our experienced vinegrowers, whose knowledge has been passed down through the generations over centuries.

Winemaking

Made from grapes from three micro plots of vines gnarled by the passage of time. These are grown in poor soils on slopes, and have a production of less than 2.000 kg per hectare.

Harvested in batches of 18kg and fermented in 225-litre barrels of extra-fine French oak, with malolactic fermentation in the barrel and regular batonages to keep the wine resting on its lees.

Tasting notes

Have you heard of the nectar that comes from old vines; gnarled and cracked by the passage of time? Coordenadas is an artisanal wine; a delicacy of only 2,200 bottles, which shows off this bounty of the ages. A symphony of aromas that swirl around the glass: from wild black fruits, to slight smoky hints, floral notes and mineral tones. Moving on to the palate, we discover a complex Tempranillo; mature, personal and special from beginning to end.
