Burgo Viejo Crianza 2009

  • Red ruby coloured wine with violet, licorice, fig and chocolate notes that frame well balanced sweet plum, black fruit, vanilla and coconut flavours. Powerful, complex and silky smooth.

    Bodegas Burgo Viejo represent a new way of understanding Rioja, setting the pride of a hundred-year-old tradition in an innovative spirit that bring them to the vanguard of the 21st Century. Burgo Viejo, more than a Rioja.

    Six families of farmers founded Bodegas Burgo Viejo in 1987 (with the next generation coming onboard, it is now sixteen families working together). Burgo Viejo´s main asset has always been the exquisite winemaking process of grapes collected from its own vineyards throughout the years. Young Gorka Etxebarria is the leading winemaker and has been working with Burgo Viejo since December 2003.

    The vineyards measure 200 hectares – 494 acres – (90% tinto, 5% rosado, 5% blanco) and spread throughout the municipality of Alfaro, La Rioja, Spain at the foothills of Yerga Mountain, on the banks of the fertile Ebro Valley. This area offers a huge diversity of soils and microclimates where the grape varietals, Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Garnacha, Carignan, Graciano and Viura grow to become Burgo Viejo wines.

    Most of the vines are 30 years old. Some Garnacha are over 90 years old and some young organic Graciano have been planted. The types of oak used are 90% American and 10% French.
