Review

Remírez de Ganuza, the great Riojan expert in producing fine red wines from Spain, has finally decided to present us, as an act of pure kindness, with his Erre Punto, a wine made with carbonic maceration, obvious from its aromas and flavours. Yet a component has been added that has made it become a more measured, refined wine. Could it be the blending with the inclusion of white grape varieties? A master craftsman, Fernando looks for more than the obvious explosion of red fruit. So then, we’re looking at a wine with an assortment of fresh, naturally-wild colours that, after a good swirl round, appears to have density. I love its elegance tempered by odd notes of strawberry candy sticks, banana, caramel and sugary, mass-produced sweets (strawberry and coca-cola chewy shapes). This unleashed energy is reined in by the gentle fragrance of pure melon and grapefruit juice.

Truly wonderful in the mouth! Despite being the newcomer on the scene, it displays its strength subtly, with more acidity than usual (not typical of carbonic maceration wines) and something else apart from the straightforward impact of red fruit. Is it, perhaps, the sharp freshness of tropical white fruit?

Well done, Fernando! Can we have the recipe, please?

Gusta desde la primera copa

Es un vino que me ha sorprendido ya que es un vino redondo y que gusta desde la primera copa. Es más dejando media botella para el dia siguiente y como suele pasar con la mayoria de los caldos, que empiezan a decaer este al contrario se mantenia en el mismo sabor e incluso con algo mas de cuerpo. Una grata sorpresa... lo recomiendo....

Bodegas Fernando Remírez de Ganuza

Located in Samaniego, in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa, there exists what we could call the region's authentic “signature” winery. Thanks to the intelligent, keen-eyed work of Fernando Remírez de Ganuza, this wine conveys his singular approach and methodology, as well as its own individual character and distinguishing features.“New Rioja” would mean simply nothing without this great innovator and his now much-revered winery.
