4 /5

Cruz de Alba Crianza is een uitstekende wijn uit Spanje's beste wijngebied voor rode kwaliteitswijnen, de Ribera del Duero. De handgeplukte Tempranillo druiven komen van wijnstokken uit oude wijngaarden van het Pagos Valdeío Estate en zijn meer dan 20 jaar oud. Cruz de Alba Crianza wordt traditioneel gevinifieerd met 15 maanden rijping op nieuwe Amerikaanse en Franse eikenhouten vaten. Daarna volgt nog 10 maanden rijping op de fles, alvorens de wijn in de handel wordt gebracht. Vanwege zijn lange houtrijping verkrijgt de wijn zijn recht op de aanduiding 'Crianza'. Cruz de Alba Crianza heeft een heldere, levendige donkerrode kersenkleur. In de neus herkent men aroma's van hout en tabak, rijp rood fruit en mineralen. In de smaak proeft men zachte tannines en een soepel karakter. De wijn is goed in balans en heeft een lange finale, die eindigt in tonen van drop en kersen op likeur. Aanbevolen wordt om deze wijn te serveren bij wild gerechten, lamsvlees en gegrild rood vlees. Voor kaas liefhebbers: de stevige wijn past is een prachtige begeleider bij oude kazen zoals Beemster, Fougerus of bij oude serranoham.
