BODEGAS PRíNCIPE DE VIANA

Region: Navarra
Appellation: D.O. Navarra
City: Murchante
Winery Website: www.principedeviana.com
Winery GPS Coordinates: 42.034312,-1.648923

OVERVIEW

1200 acres of old vines are managed under contract throughout the region. In 2003, over one thousand additional acres of estate vineyards were established on a rolling chalky-stony plateau at the confluence of the Aragón and Ebro Rivers. Primary grape varieties, sustainably grown, are Tempranillo, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Graciano and Garnacha. Soils are mainly chalky clay and alluvial deposit, the climate an intermittent interplay of Atlantic, Mediterranean and Continental. Persistent ‘Cierzo’ winds responsible for the adjacent Bardenas Desert Natural Park effectively minimize plant disease.

HISTORY

Bodegas Príncipe de Viana was created in 1983 as a banner project of Caja Rural de Navarra, an agricultural lending institution founded to provide financial assistance for the sustainable development of Navarra’s important farming sector. Reflecting wine’s nobility among agricultural products, the project takes its name from an historic Navarran title of Spanish royal succession dating to 1423.

Príncipe de Viana Edición Rosa (2016) - "This red grapefruit colored 100% Grenache based Rose has a nice shy bouquet of strawberries, red berries and light pink grapefruit. Light in body, crisp and round, the palate is very fruity and includes strawberries, fruit juice, light guava and nice acidity. This Rosa had a nice dry finish and I would pair it with grilled scallops. "

Príncipe de Viana Reserva (2011) - "Deep red. Oak-spiced cherry, raspberry and vanilla aromas are joined by a peppery nuance that gains strength as the wine opens up. Smooth and seamless on the palate, offering sappy red fruit liqueur and spicecake flavors that deepen on the back half. Shows good energy and lively fruit for its age and finishes supple, broad and sweet, with discreet tannins and good persistence."

Príncipe de Viana Reserva (2011) - "Navarra, a wine region in northern Spain, is best known for its Garnacha based rosado. With its proximity to Rioja (indeed, a part of Rioja DOCa lies within the geographic area of Navarra) it is not surprising that Tempranillo, the major grape of its neighbor, does well too. Despite its five years of age, this rich wine remains tight and needs additional bottle age. It’s closed, but balanced, at this stage, and just needs time to open as opposed to being hard or astringent and needing time to soften. Lively acidity balances its plumlike fruitiness and muscular stature, keeping it fresh. If you opt to drink it this winter, open a few hours before the meal and decant it to let it breathe. Alternatively, find a place for this bargain priced beauty in your cellar. "

Príncipe de Viana Reserva (2011) - "Flavors of baked plum and cherry are backed by notes of mocha,tobacco, vanilla and herbs. A long, balanced, cedary finish helps this along."

Príncipe de Viana Edición Limitada (2012) - "This "Super-Spanish" red is more than likely what the Italians were striving for when they thought of blending Sangiovese with other French varieties. Opaque in the glass, this red opens up with notes of cedar, nutmeg, ripe strawberries, lavender, and hints of eucalyptus. The palate may not be the most intense but the integration of flavors, textures, acidity, and tannins is something few wines are capable of achieving. The cooking spices are mixed seamlessly with dried cranberries and plums. There are also hints of Maduro tobacco leaves, cloves, and Kalamata olives. Savory, with a dry finish indicating food, is more than required. "

Príncipe de Viana Graciano Roble (2013) - "Deep ruby.  Lively, expressive aromas of black raspberry, smoky minerals and subtle oak spices.  Smooth and silky on the palate, offering good focus to its vivid flavors of fresh cherry and cassis.  Spicy, lively and taut on the finish, framed by supple tannins. "

Príncipe de Viana Tinto Crianza (2010) - "Bold black-fruit aromas are pure and inviting. Overall, this blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is flush in feel, balanced and full of wild berry and plum flavors. On the finish, fully present acidity supports oak and chocolaty notes."

Príncipe de Viana Garnacha Roble (2012) - "Bright violet color. Jammy red berry aromas, with peppery spices and a hint of vanilla adding complexity.

Príncipe de Viana Tinto Crianza (2010) - "(40% Tempranillo, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot): Saturated ruby. Dark berry and cherry aromas are brightened by white pepper and fresh flowers. Tangy and focused on the palate, offering lively blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of allspice. Finishes clean and precise, with good mineral cut. In a lithe, fat-free style that will work well at the table."
