Cropped from a challenging year, the 2013 Cune Gran Reserva is the classical blend of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, and it matured in barrique for 24 months followed by 36 months in bottle before being released. They didn't make an Imperial Gran Reserva or even Reserva in 2013, so the best grapes from the challenging 2013 vintage went to this Gran Reserva. It's from a lighter year and perhaps had a softer vinification and a shorter élevage, delivering a gentler Gran Reserva with more fruit. It has an herbal twist that led us to discuss the 1975 Viña Real Gran Reserva, which has a really strong herbal strike. The palate is quite light and is medium-bodied, with mostly resolved tannins and a dry finish. 50,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2016.

Winemaking
Made from hand-selected grapes from our vineyards in Rioja Alta. The alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats. Post-fermentation maceration brought colour and structure to the wine and subsequent malolactic fermentation provided the wine with the maturity to support its ageing in American and French oak barrels. Before bottling, the wine was allowed to clarify naturally. Finally, the wine was left to age in our centenary cellars where it remained for a minimum of 36 months under optimum temperature and humidity conditions until being released to the market.

Tasting Notes
Ruby red in colour, the wine shows a youthful hint at the rim. The nose reveals interesting and complex aromas of ripe fruits in perfect balance with spices, toffee, roasted coffee and balsamic notes. The palate is soft with silky tannins, good, fresh acidity and a long finish with a balsamic aftertaste. In terms of matching, this wine is a perfect companion for any dish of the Mediterranean diet.
