Natalie's Score: 90/100
Viña Real Crianza 2018 is a vibrant, medium-bodied and fruit-driven red wine blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano wine grapes sourced from the Rioja Alavesa wine region. Produced by Compania Vinicola Norte De Espana, the wine is vegan-friendly and grapes were fermented in stainless steel tank, and matured in French and American oak barrels for up to 14 months. Fragrant with pink florals and red berry aromas, the wine is vibrant with blackberry, plum, cherry, cedar brush spice and cola flavours with racy acidity on the palate. A good cellaring candidate for eight-plus years. Drink or hold.
Crianza food pairings: sautéed duck with green peppers mushrooms and bamboo shoots, curried duck, pineapple and bell peppers fried duck.
Delightful Duck Wine

This is a surprising very good value medium body red. The true test is whether the bottle is finished...Yup. Great on its own.

Made by Compania Vinicola del Norte de Espana (CVNE), one of the best wine producers in Spain, the Vina Real 2018 Crianza offers splendid aromas of cherry, sugarplum, mustard seed, pastrami, coca and cedar. Blended from 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha, this lovely Spaniard delivers polished tannins, a medium body and soft acidity. The finish exposes fresh quality fruit, releasing flavors of ripe cherry, strawberry, bay leaf, graphite, cinnamon and cedar. Enjoy!
