Only in the great vintages we select the best bunches from our oldest vines to make our Gran Reserva, a wine of great elegance, subtle but intense and persistent.

Tempranillo and Graciano (4%).

 

28 months in 6 French oak barrels and 4 made from American oak.

 

2,913 bottles.

Miguel Merino Gran Reserva 2009

Balance and harmony are the key of a good Reserva wine. Nothing must be missing, but nothing should outstand: fruit, intensity, structure, longitude and personality must play in unison as a good orchestra. And that is what we pursue (haunt?) with this wine made from vineyards planted in the 60’s.

Tempranillo and Graciano (4%).

 

22 months in 23 barrels made with American oak staves and French oak bottoms.

 

6,668 bottles

 

Miguel Merino Reserva 2011

Vitola Reserva comes from vines planted in a slope facing Northwest in the seventies. Its altitude and sun exposure lets us make this subtle, deep and balanced reserve wine.

Tempranillo (100%).

 

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

 

6,588 bottles.

 

Vitola Reserva 2011

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%).

 

15 months in 13 French oak barrels.

 

3,870 bottles.

 

Unnum 2011

One of the very few wines in Rioja made only with Mazuelo grapes. The hard conditions of our Quinta Cruz Vineyard (steep slope, poor pebblely soil) give us some very singular grapes to make this special wine that changes enormously from one vintage to another.

Mazuelo (100%).

 

12 months in 10 French oak barrels and 4 made with American oak.

 

 3,996 bottles.

Mazuelo de la Quinta Cruz 2014

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 planted the vineyard of El Rincon, in the South of Briones. 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 y Graciano (8%).

 

16 monts in barrels made with American oak staves and French oak bottoms.

 

12,192 botellas.
