Description

A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain, as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with great aging potential.

About the Vineyard:

Ysios is a red wine produced by the winery Ysios in the D.O Rioja. The winery belongs to the group Pernod Ricard Bodegas and is located in Laguradia (La Rioja Alavesa). Ysios is 100% produced from the varietal Tempranillo. The vines are 30 years old originating from 75 hectares over 8 different plots of land situated in Laguardia and Elvillar.

Wine Production:

For production, the most time fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled 28-30ºC subsequently is macerated with the husks for 25-30 days. Once finalized, Ysios is aged in French (65%), American and Hungarian (35%) oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:

Very pretty salmon color in the glass. Loads of floral and red berry aromas with cherry, strawberry, and raspberry flavors on the palate. The creamy mouthfeel leads to hints of spice on the pleasantly tart finish.

Food Pairing:

Pairs with seafood dishes like crab salad, baked salmon, and fish tacos; or with classic ones like ham and gruyére quiche paired with a green salad, chicken-based dishes, and also goes very well with spicy Asian inspired dishes.
