Ferrer Family Wines VAZA Crianza
Originating from the word “Baza” which in Spanish means “trump card” or “new beginning” Vaza represents a fusion of Spain’s winemaking vanguard and the country’s rich wine history. The wines are produced at Solar Viejo, a winery situated on the shoulder of the medieval village of Laguardia in Rioja Alavesa.
Aged 12 months in French (60%) and American (40%) oak.
Garnet red in colour, of medium intensity.
The nose opens with intense aromas of ripe red fruit, but once the glass is swirled the complexity increases markedly and the flavours of barrel ageing start to appear – noticeably vanilla, cinnamon, coconut and caramel.
Good palate structure, with elegant, pleasant tannins. Positive flavours of oak, and in the finish those fruit flavours so typical of our Tempranillos. There is a good acidity which will allow the wine to develop well in bottle.
This is a versatile wine which will pair well with many dishes. It is particularly suited to cold meat dishes, aged cheeses and red or casseroled meats.
