30% tempranillo, 20% syrah, 30% merlot and 20% cabernet sauvignon all of which come from sticks about 20 years old. Separate maturation of the grapes for 11 months in French and American oak barrels. After that, the wine matures in the bottle for a few months before it comes on the market.
Deep red, concentrated color. Wine with the clear tempranillo assertiveness, tempered by a spicy syrah and a soft merlot, plus the structure of the cabernet. A set of mouth-filling red fruit, rounded off with nicely integrated tannins. A tasty quality wine to drink now but with clear storage potential.
Araiz Crianza is an all-around: from spicy chicken or veal, to fried steak or roasted lamb or stews.
