Vinification of the Macán Rioja by Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia

The basis for the powerful Macán Rioja from La Rioja are grapes from the grape variety Tempranillo. Macán Rioja is an Old World wine through and through, as this Spaniard exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. The fact that the Tempranillo grapes thrive under the influence of a warm climate also has a considerable influence on the maturity of the vintage. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly well ripened grapes and rather high alcohol content in the wine. After harvesting, the grapes reach the winery by the fastest route. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. This is followed by fermentation in large wood at controlled temperatures. After its end, the Macán Rioja is aged for another 16 months in French oak barrels.

Food recommendation for the Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia Macán Rioja

Enjoy this red wine from Spain ideally tempered at 15 - 18 ° C as a companion to stuffed peppers, goose breast with ginger-red cabbage and marjoram or duck breast with sugar snap peas.
