LAN CRIANZA

A great value wine
that is an everyday reward

LAN Crianza

Our most famous wine, the one that best reflects our innovations in ageing, as we started to use hybrid oak barrels (with French oak bases and American oak staves) for LAN Crianza as long as two decades ago, contributing to its unmistakeable character.

GRAPE VARIETIES:
96% Tempranillo and 4% Mazuelo.

VINEYARDS:
Selected vineyards in the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa, aged between 10 and 20 years. Chalky-clay soils, located on well-drained slopes with good sun exposure.

WINEMAKING:
Traditional winemaking, destalking - crushing.
Fermentation in stainless steel tanks. 15 days' maceration, with continuous pumping-over to optimise colour extraction.

AGEING:
Aged for 14 months in hybrid oak barrels, followed by 9 months' bottle conditioning.

TASTING NOTES: Bright cherry red with a garnet rim. A refined nose with predominant notes of red and stone fruits: strawberry, raspberry and peach. Patisserie and cream encased in elegant notes of vanilla, caramel and a subtle hint of cinnamon. It is flavourful and expressive on the palate. It is immediately inviting, enveloping the palate and leaving a long and pleasant aftertaste.
