Details

The motto of Añares is “wines to be lived.” So, it’s no surprise they make “leisurely” wines that are fit for all occasions, whether it’s a dinner party, barbecue, or #winewednesday.

Made using traditional Spanish varieties, the wine was fermented in large oak vats giving the wine its deep colour and intense fruit flavours.  It was then aged for 18 months in oak barrels. Risevera indicates that the wine was also aged in bottle for at least two years prior to release. This ensures all the fruit and oak flavours integrate, making a truly harmonious wine.

Juicy red berries, ripe plums, and a hint of leather are accompanied by liquorice and vanilla. With a smooth palate and subtle tannins, this wine is definitely singing right now!

Grapes

Tempranillo 90%, Garnacha 5%, Mazuelo and Graciano 5% from Rioja Alta and Baja.

Winemaking

Careful selection of the fruit as it came into the winery enables the Winemaker to perfom long periods of maceration, so as to ensure good extraction of tannins, aroma and other quality components in the resulting wines.
After fermentation, the wine was racked several times in large American-oak vats before being left to age for 18 months in oak casks. After bottling, Añares Reserva has been kept in the bottle cellar to develop its bouquet and harmonious character.

Tasting Note
Deep cherry red with ruby hues, Añares Reserva is a wine for laying down. lts aromatic complexity includes red berries, liquorice and hints of smokiness, opening up towards animal aromas after opening. In the mouth, it proves to be long and with good backbone, with a reminder of the fruit returning in the aftertaste.
