"The classical textbook 2014 Crianza has very good integration of the oak and juicy fruit, which is ripe without excess. 100,000 bottle"

"Berry and cherry flavors are bright and fresh in this focused red. Vanilla, floral and licorice notes add interest. Light, firm tannins and citrusy acidity lend structure. Drink now through 2026. 8,300 cases made. –TM"
Áster Crianza is made from 100% Tinta del País from the vineyards surrounding the winery. It was aged for 22 months in half French and half American oak.
In the 1990s, La Rioja Alta decided to try their luck in the Ribera del Duero, where terroir and microclimate meet to invite the utmost expression of the Tempranillo grape. They sought the best possible site following the advice of the Denomination’s best growers and different academic experts. Also, La Rioja Alta studied and analysed the soil, grapes and weather of many different subzones. Anguix (Burgos) was finally selected as the ideal location and in 1991 they planted the vineyard on land that was purchased the previous year. They chose to name this new venture Bodegas Aster after a Spanish flower that blooms at harvest.
The grapes from the first seven harvests were sold. In 2000, having verified the quality of the vineyard and the grapes, a winery was built representing a perfect combination of cutting-edge wine-making technology and timeless elegance in design. That year saw the creation of the first Áster offering.
