Bodegas y Viñedos Martínez Corta decided 50 years ago to devote to the elaboration of high quality wines.
Our grandfather and his four sons (one of them our father), were the major the producers in the village of Uruñuela in the 60s and 70s.
Bodegas y Viñedos Martínez-Corta was born with the effort and work of a family devoted to the world of wine for four generations.
The wines come from 70Ha of vineyards they have been cultivating along several generations.
These vineyards are located in La Rioja Alta, so their wines are elaborated from their own vineyards.
Both the design of the winery and the engineering of the elaboration process work together so as to elaborate high quality wines.
VECTRUM COSECHA 2007
For the elaboration of this wine the vineyards are previously selected.
They are vineyards with yields between 5500 and 6500 kg/Ha and they have more than 40 years.
During the elaboration two macerations were made: the first one in cold and the second one was made after the alcoholic fermentation in order to have a perfect extraction of the wine colours and aromas.
The alcoholic fermentation lasted 7 days and a temperature of 23-26ºC. During the elaboration the delestage, a technique of vinification, was used.
The elaboration of our wines begins in the vineyard itself and as a rule in our winery the process of maturation is controlled in all of them. So, after the analysis it was decided that the vintage should begin at the end of September. During the vintage there were sunny days and fresh nights that favoured the ripeness of the vineyard.
The winter gave to us soft temperatures and light frosts at the end of February. The spring was hot and there were moderate rainfalls. We do not suffer hailstorms.
Ripen fruit cherry covered with intense edge. Powerful aroma to red wild fruits, fund of mature fruits with mineral shades. In the palate it is a rich and very powerful wine, full of fruity expressions.
