OINOZ BY CLAUDE GROS 2014

2014
Very dry and harsh winter, with an intense drought during the first part of Spring. Very rainy April that led to a late budding because of very harsh conditions in Winter. Very warm Summer and strong drought. Harvest without water although slight rainfalls at the end of September.

The vineyard
Franc and limy soils from San Vicente de la Sonsierra, north-Ebro at the northern end of Rioja. 25-80 years old vines with a limited productions and small grapes. Las Ginebras is located in an austere mountain climate.

The wine
Very intense shades of dark cardinal, with violet tones. Aromas of fresh red fruit such as raspberry and blackberry and floral violet with subtle eucalyptus, licorice stick and clay minerals. Tones of its aging in French and American oak lightly toasted. A wide, elegant and soft mouth, with good acidity. Nice long finish feeling
