Product Description:

"In general, Viña Bosconia wines are elegant but full-bodied; have a deep colour and good structure, and are wines with great complexity and expression. The Viña Bosconia Reserva is made every year in quantities varying from 20,000 to 48,000 bottles. The difference between the Reserva and the Gran Reserva wines is that the former are made every year and are "coupage" wines and not vintage wines. They age for 5 years in American oak barrels, and are hand racked around 10 times before they are released to the market. The Gran Reserva wines are only made in very exceptional vintages, in small quantities and from selected grapes. The number of bottles made varies from 5,000 to 15,000. They age in barrel for a minimum of 8 years to a maximum of 10 and some of them are hand racked over 20 times. After being fined with egg white directly in the barrel, they are both bottled and corked by hand, and finally waxed so that the cork is protected when they lie in our underground cellars for another 10 years before being released to the market." -Winery
