We observed through the years that sometimes Tempranillo ripens differently insome plants, showing more depth and volume. We identified those plants anddecided to elaborate a small batch with them: 1998 Cirsion (a combination ofCirsium and Kirsion, the latin and greek words for the Thisler genus)Grape sourcing: Selected old vines (45 years of age) and very low yields fromvarious vineyards, mostly in Rioja AltaVarieties:100% TempranilloFermentation: Fermented in French oak vats (with temperature control)Malolactic fermentation in new French oakAgeing: Aged in French oak barriques for 8 months and bottle aged for further4 months6000 bottles produced (none produced in 2002 or 2008)2009 Vintage: 96p GP, 93pWS, 92p WA, 99GPR, 96 W&S, 97WE2007: 92+WA, 93IWC, 96GP2006: 92p WS, 95p WA, 90W&S, 94GP2005: 93p WS, 96p WA, 96p WE (Spain’s top 10, nº 4), 93W&S, 94GP, 92IWC,4*Decanter2004: 92p WS, 93p WA, 92p WE, 99 GPR2003: 92p WS, 94p WA, 91W&S, 92IWC2001: 97pWA, 97WE, 5*Decanter1999: 95p WA

James Suckling: Silky tannings and a lot of potential
Impressive depth and density here. Ripe red plum and cherry fruits are matched against spicy, mocha-scented oak. The palate has commanding, concentrated appeal, silky tannings and a lot of potential. Best from 2020.

Grape sourcing

Bush vines represent the traditional vinegrowing method in Rioja, it offers betterconduction for the juices of the plant, protects is from the heat, and offers a better aeration whenthe vine is old enough.• We have selected some 120 hectares, 70 of them are ours. They are classiffied in 17different landscapes, which are later fermented in 17 different French oak vats.• Sustainability is more than a cliché for us. It is part of our philosophy and it is ouronly future.• Most of them (85% in Haro and surrounding villages) are located in Rioja Alta, butthere is an undeniable part of Alavesa (really close to Alta anyway) and Baja.• We have selected and kept 550 clons of Tempranillo that we haveidentified throughout Rioja.• Our range shows the two profiles of ripening of the Tempranillo: that of the red acidfruit (strawberry, cherry) and a darker fruit one (more oriented towards the plum)• We work mostly (with the only exception of Sela) with Vines older than 30 years,when maturity delivers

Fermentation

Grapes are chilled (downto 10ºC) upon reception for2-3 days of prefermentativemacerationIndigeneous yeasts (noyield management)17 French oak vatsfor the separate fermentationof 17 different landscapesOak fermentation avoidsthermal dropspostfermentative maceration

Malolactic fermentation

All our wines go throughmalolacticfermentation inFrench oakWe installed a radiant floorheating systemto takethe temperature up to 20ºCOnce Malolactic is finishedthe windows of the hall areopened, letting theNorthern winds takethe temperature down(stabilisation)

Philosophy

The wine, a vehicle to transmit sensations, but also a means totransmit a landscape, a Riojan landscape. We want ourwines to show a sense of place• We play with 17 different landscapes every year• We want to respect the vintage, the features that makethe vegetative cycle unique every year (no irrigation, no blend)• Wine is meant to be enjoyed, the palate is the real index, wetry to avoid saturation, we reward elegance• Our range shows the two sides of the ripening of theTempranillo: the red acid fruit (strawberry, cherry) and darkfruit (black plums)• Oak is complementary, never to play a key role
