Intro to Cune Rosado Rioja –
Cune Rosado Rioja from Spain is made from Viura and Tempranillo and this wine has an attractive aroma of red summer fruits and a palate reminiscent of summer pudding drizzled with cream.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Cune Rosado Rioja has elegant floral aromas with intense aromas of red fruits such as strawberries, raspberries and currants and a fruity palate with balanced acidity. Wine of great freshness and perfect companion for appetizers, pasta dishes, oily fish, and pickles that are so difficult to pair with food.
CVNE farms half of its grape crush. The remainder is purchased from long-term growers in the Rioja Alta and Alavesa regions. We harvested our carefully selected Tempranillo and Viura grapes at optimum ripeness to achieve a high level of aromatic extraction and a good concentration. The grapes are kept in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature to prevent the start of fermentation. The juice is removed from the solids after around 24 to 48 hours, once we have determined that the colour is the pink we require. The fermentation is then carried out without the presence of seeds or skins at a controlled temperature of 16¼ to 18¼C for around 8 days to obtain the required fruit levels in the wine.
The producer –
C.V.N.E., or to give it its full name, Compañía Vinicola del Norte de España (The Northern Spanish Wine Company) was established on the 24th of March 1879 in Haro, Rioja. Set up by two brothers, Eusebio and Raimundo Real de Asúa, their aim was to capitalise on the flourishing new trade in wine. C.V.N.E. is based in Haro’s traditional neighbourhood of the train station, in the heart of the Rioja wine region. Historically, some of the oldest wineries of Rioja Alta established themselves here in order to benefit from the ease of transport via rail to the port of Bilbao, the most efficient form of transport in those days. By 1900, the winery had an extraordinary ageing capacity of 80,000 bottles, which was most unusual at the time, as most wineries sold their wines as soon as possible.
C.V.N.E. is still controlled by the direct descendants of the founding family. Now in its fifth generation, the company has been quoted on the Madrid stock exchange since 1997.
C.V.N.E. farms half of its grape crush. The remainder is purchased from long term growers. With three wineries in the region; Cune, Viña Real and Contino the winemakers have control over quality from vineyard to bottle.
