Miguel Merino Reserva 2006

Balance and harmony are the key of a good Reserva wine. Nothing must be missing, but nothing should outstand: fruit, intensity, structure, persistence and personality must appear unisonous as a good orchestra. And that is what we aim in this wine made from vineyards planted in the 60’s.

Tempranillo & Graciano (5%).

 

19 months in 37 barrels made with American oak staves and French oak bottoms.

 

Edition of 10.417 bottles.

Vitola Reserva 2006

The elegance. Us at our most classic version; a mature wine, complex and expressive, deep and smooth, that keeps the line of the best traditional Reserva wines from the Rioja Alta region.

Tempranillo & Graciano (4%).

 

22 months in 68 barrels made with American oak staves and French oak bottoms.

 

Edition of 19,491 bottles.

Unnum 2009

The vineyard as the Star. Tempranillo is the grape that best leads and keeps the peculiarities in each soil, and with this wine we try to bottle a place and a year. Everything that comes after the harvest (fermentation, oak, ageing) is designed to respect and maintain the extraordinary characteristics of Mendiguerra and La Loma, the vineyards of Unnum.

Tempranillo 100%.

 

11 months in 17 French oak barrels and 5 of American oak.

 

Edition of 5870 bottles and 363 magnum.

Mazuelo de la Quinta Cruz 2010

One of the very few wines made from the Mazuelo grape variety in Rioja, and a wine that does not leave anyone indifferent. Intense, spiced and a bit crazy, it is incredibly distinct from year to year.

Mazuelo 100%.

 

10 months in 7 American oak barrels and 7 from French oak.

 

Edition of 3,988 bottles.

Miguel Merino Viñas Jóvenes 2010

Old vines do not live forever. In order to have access to such special vines in the future as we do today, we needed to start working on younger vineyards as well. In 2007 we bought the vineyard of El Rincon, in the South of Briones, planted in 1998. We have also planted some new vineyards which will become part of this wine until the vines are old enough to give us grapes for our Reservas.

Tempranillo and Graciano (8%).

 

12 months in 72 barrels made with American oak staves and French oak bottoms.

 

Edition of 20.082 bottles and 762 magnum.
