Bodegas Sonsierra Perfume de Sonsierra Rioja

Wine: ‘Perfume de Sonsierra’

Producer: Bodegas Sonsierra

Country: Spain

Region: Rioja / Rioja Alta

Vintage: 2014

Style: Red

Blend: Tempranillo 100%

ABV: 13.8%

Size: 75cl

 

Notes: Perfume de Sonsierra is a wine made from Tempranillo grapes from old vineyards (over 40 years of age) of the highest quality located in the foothills of Sierra de Cantabria.

Perfume de Sonsierra is a meaty, powerful & exuberant wine. Very fragrant on the nose. In the mouth it stands out for the balance between opulence & elegance & it is regarded as the winery’s top expression. (The bottle is pretty cool too!)

The harvest is performed by hand & once the grapes arrive at the winery, after a slight crushing, they go through a pre-fermentation maceration for 4 days. The alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 9 days. The malolactic fermentation takes place on its lees in a selection of new Bordeaux barrels made of French oak. The wine is aged for 16 months in new Bordeaux French oak barrels. Before it is launched on the market, it is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of 8 months.

 

Producer Info: Bodegas Sonsierra was born in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in the heart of a region with unique characteristics for vine growing, where the Tempranillo grape finds its perfect environment. In 1962, more than 240 vine growers decided to pool their 430 hectares of vineyards to realise an old dream of farmers in the village: the creation of a cooperative in which they produce their own wines.

Planting occupies a wide variety of different terrain: from the foothills of the Cantabrian Mountains at an altitude of 770 metres, to the rolling terraces of the lowlands near the River Ebro, at an altitude of just 420 metres.
