Macán Clásico 2019 is Vega’s project in Rioja with the Rothschild family. It is 100% Tempranillo planted in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria in the Sonsierra region of Rioja. The Clásico is their second wine that uses younger vine fruit and the wine spending a few months less ageing in french oak barrels (14 months). 2019 was a very dry and warm vintage, with a concentrated core and richness.
2018 Macán is Vega’s project in Rioja with the Rothschild family and the flagship wine of the project. 2018 was a relatively cool vintage with plenty of welcome rain, leading to a wine that has an abundance of freshness as well as a purity of fruit and less full bodied compared to previous vintages. Aged in French oak, mostly new for 15 months, this is a modern style Rioja that is made up of 100% Tempranillo.
100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) the Alión 2019 comes from the unique and most exciting vines that are situated in the Ribera del Duero DO. A wide range of soil types help contribute to the complex wine that is aged for at least 18 months in oak barrels. 2019 was a dry vintage that has led to an extremely concentrated profile.
The Pintia made up of 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) and comes from the Toro DO. Winemaking history goes back to the Romans here, with a climate that experiences extremely cold winters and hot summers. 2018 saw a cooler vintage, with significant rainfall and therefore the wine is very restrained and shows a lot of finesse.
The Valbuena is aged between barrel and bottle over five years and is made up of 96% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) and 4% Merlot. The vines are located on the conclave slopes of Ribera with complex colluvial soils. The 2018 vintage was a slightly cooler vintage in Ribera del Duero, which has led to a fresher style and lighter profile.
Only produced with the very best vintages, The Unico Reserva Especial is Vega’s non-vintage homage to the Spanish tradition of blending multiple vintages. 95% Tempranillo and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2023 release is made up of 2009, 2011 & 2012, which convey the soul of the region in the glass.
