The Mazuelo Reserva Rioja from Beronia is an outstanding, varietal red wine from the Spanish Rioja region.
In the glass, this wine shines in a shiny ruby red with dark shades. The intense bouquet reveals wonderful aromas of pickled fruits, dried apricots, sweetly ripened berries and subtle hints of Mediterranean spices. On the palate, this Spanish red wine presents a powerful and lively character, which is enveloped by expressive notes of juicy cherries, fine spices and a touch of cocoa.The texture is wonderfully structured, full-bodied and harmoniously balanced. The ageing in oak barrels rounds off the long finish perfectly with the fresh acidity.
Vinification of the Beronia Reserva Mazuelo After harvesting
the Mazuelo grapes, they are immediately brought to the Beronia wine cellar and mashed. The grapes are fermented slowly on the mash. As a result, the colour pigments and the typical grape variety aromas are extracted from the peels. To increase this extraction, we pump the mash regularly - the pumping also causes the mash to come into more contact with oxygen and the tannins to be soothed.
Once alcoholic fermentation and biodegradation have been completed, this red wine is aged in French and American oak barriques for a total of 26 months. Beronia has specially made "mixed" barrels made of both types of oak for this purpose.
After the wood has been aged, the wine is removed and filled onto the bottle. Here, this wine rests in the wine cellar for another 12 months.
