Vega del Rayo Rioja Vendimia Seleccionada is a characterful, classic Rioja with just a touch of oak. The nose has warm spice, ripe plum and cherry aromas while the palate is richly flavoured and substantial with black fruit and a smoky, spicy character from time in oak. Well-balanced, fruity and approachable.
The fruit is harvested in early October from vineyards in Rioja Alta, around the town of Haro. Vines on average 15-20 years old. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 25-30° C with twice daily pumpovers. After 12 days fermentation on the skins the wine is gently pressed and racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The wine is then racked to a mixture of American and French oak barrels for 4-6 months maturation.
