El Manao

Singular Vineyard

Ico Vinedos

El viñedo

100% Tempranillo grapes from the “el Manao” single vineyard, harvested by hand. This little gem covers just 0.24 hectares and was planted with goblet-trained vines in square formation in 1927 (although in the records of the Rioja Control Board it appears as 1952). It is located at an altitude of 410 m, on a slope with a 20% incline and perfect southern exposure. A majestic walnut tree towers over the vineyard.
The soil has a pronounced calcareous-clay character, with a medium-level organic matter content and cation-exchange capacity, perfect for growing vines. The 2017 vintage was classified as “very good” by DOCa Rioja regulatory council. In Rioja Alta it was mostly dry year, with a severe frost on April 28. Only 720 kg was harvested from El Manao vineyard that equivalents to 3,000 kg/ha yield. Early harvest on September 23.

Ico Elaboracion

Winemaking

After destemming, the grapes were selected and vatted in 500-liter stainless steel tanks where it underwent fermentation for 14 days without post maceration. A total of 460 l was made and used to fill two new 225-liter Premium French oak barrels on October 3, 2017, where the wine aged for 22 months without racking.

Bottled on April 14, 2020. After meticulous selection, both in vineyard and the winery, and low yields from this vineyard we only released 576 bottles. It is one of the few Rioja wines on the market that in its inaugural vintage has been awarded the Single Vineyard qualification.
