Beronia was founded in 1973 by a group of businessmen, friends from the Basque country who would come to La Rioja on holiday. The friends had a great love of food and wine and created their own gastronomic society, or txoko as it is called locally, in the area. They decided, to produce their own wines to enjoy with the local cuisine, specialising in Reserva and Gran Reserva style wines. The winery was integrated into the González Byass Family of Wine group in 1982 and began an expansion into international markets. Today Beronia is one of the most renowned Spanish wineries both in international and domestic markets, producing pure and traditional Rioja wines with their own personality and Beronia style.
The Tempranillo grapes are cold macerated pre-fermentation for a few hours to extract colour. Alcoholic fermentation then takes places at less then 22ºC. This wine was bottled in February 2015 and should spend at least 1 month in bottle before commercialisation.
On the nose intense and complex with fresh red fruits standing out especially strawberry and cherry blended with slight reminders of rose petals. On the palate powerful, sweet and fruity with red fruits, toffee and strawberry. A fresh and creamy wine with a long and intense finish.
This wine should be served well chilled. Perfect by the glass on a hot day and also with seafood, salads and rice dishes.
