Bodegas Martinez La Orden Lanzado Rioja Crianza 2014
The Lanzado Rioja Crianza from Bodegas Martinez is a structured, yet delicate wine with smooth, soft oak and refined dried fruit and raspberry aromas. This Rioja is made with 100% Tempranillo grapes and the resulting wine is aged in oak casks for 12 months prior to bottling and release. Lanzado Rioja Crianza is fantastic value for money and is a superb example of modern Rioja with just the right amount of tannin, structure and flavours.
Martinez La Orden are producing some of the most cutting edge wines in Spain. They are fresh and vibrant with maverick winemaker, Jose Maria Martinez, striving to produce modern wines from his families old vineyards. Jose Maria constructed the first bioclimatic winery in Europe complete with solar pannels, gravity fed wine pumping and a comprehensive plan for reusing waste water reducing the winery's carbon footprint.
Regular pumping over was carried out during fermentation. The wine was then transferred to French and American oak barrels for 12 months maturation.
Ruby colour with soft oak and dried fruit on the nose, raspberries and warm earthy tones on the palate followed by a touch of oak on the finish. Good integration of tannins and fruit.
