RECOGNIZED AS THE BEST SPARKLING RIOJA BY TIM ATKIN AND THE NEW HORIZONS AWARD FOR INNOVATION BY THE LA VANGUARDIA WINE GUIDE
The long-awaited Rioja 2022 Special Report has left a reason for celebration for Bodegas Vivanco. El Master of Wine Tim Atkin has described Vivanco Cuvée Inédita Reserva Extra Brut DOCa Rioja 2018 as the best sparkling wine from the DOCa Rioja. The research work that the winemaker Rafael Vivanco has dedicated to this Cuvée Reserva Extra Brut, an unprecedented harmony of mainly Riojan varieties such as Maturana Blanca (45%), Tempranillo Blanco (30%), Viura (15%) and French Chardonnay (10%), grown in its Finca La Concepción vineyard, has conquered the highest recognition, within its category, in the list published annually by one of the most international and prominent names in wine. A list that, according to his criteria, includes the best wines of what was the first Denomination of Origin in Spain.
This unique and elegant sparkling wine, with the minimum dosage and high aging potential, oriented exclusively to the Reserve category, also conquered Atkin's palate with its first vintage, 2017. To the outstanding character of this DOCa Rioja, to its precision and freshness, was added, as now, its pioneering character: that first vintage of these four varietals was part of the original Rioja sparkling category recognized by the Denomination. An especially significant seal for Rafael Vivanco, who developed the regulations as a member of the corresponding Technical Commission.
Added to this recognition is the New Horizons Award from La Guía de Vinos 2022, published by La Vanguardiathanks to outstanding professionals such as Lluis Tolosa, Ferran Centelles, Meritxell Falgueras or Zoltan Nagy, where the best 100 wines from Spain appear. An award that rewards innovation within the sector and that highlights the personal assembly of the varieties and the great expectations that are drawn before this new category of sparkling wines from the DOCa Rioja.
Briones (La Rioja), February 21, 2022. “Taut, chiseled and youthful, with impressive focus, notes of citrus and white pepper, and a dry, lingering finish.. An impressive follow-up to last year's inaugural release, this sparkling wine continues to set the pace in Rioja.". Estos eran los adjetivos y las cualidades con las que Tim Atkin destacaba a Vivanco Cuvée Inédita Reserva Extra Brut DOCa Rioja 2018 as the best sparkling wine from the DOCa Rioja. For the second consecutive year, the British Master of Wine included Rafael Vivanco's commitment to a risky and unique sparkling wine in the famous list that it annually dedicates to Rioja Denomination wines. An Extra Brut Reserve that day after day, for 4 years, the Bodegas Vivanco winemaker cares for and examines until its bubbles dance on our palate.
