PRODUCER: Finca Museum came about as the start of the expansion process by Grupo Barón de Ley outside La Rioja region, where it originated. Seeking vine-growing areas where it was possible to maintain the right value for money, the Grupo looked towards the Cigales Appellation of Origin region. Village by village, plaza by plaza, asking all the locals, they finally found a singular vineyard where to build a spectacular winery that today bears the name Finca Museum.
WINEMAKING: A product based on thorough selection of grapes from vineyards over 80 years old, those that produce less than 4 bunches. Vines growing on gravelly terrain in the upper part of the Pisuerga Riviera. Perfectly exposed to the sun, and harvested in crates at the optimum moment, controlled from picking through to the selection table and turned into wine in small vats at controlled temperature of 28º for 10 days. Ageing is for 30 months in new French oak barrels before bottling
TASTING NOTES: A brilliant, deep dark burgundy colour, with flecks of ruby. Concentrated ripe fruity taste, with intense hints of minerals (graphite, slate), balsamic hints (eucalyptus, pine) and spices (clove, cinnamon). Reminiscent of blackberries and cranberries wrapped in a creamy oak taste, with hints of hazelnut and toffee. Concentrated in the mouth, oily in the centre, dense, balanced and sweet, with fine tannin, long and expressive, clearly leaving the strong character of the land.
