Pujanza belongs to the modern Rioja style and also has the great advantage that the vineyards are located at high altitudes (the Pujanza Norte comes from one of the highest vineyards in the Rioja). This gives the wine the typical Rioja character, but with a lot of elegance and freshness. The top model and flagship of Bodegas Pujanza. The wine comes from the Cisma vineyard which is located at the foot of the Sierra Cantabria at an altitude of 600 meters. The vines are more than 100 years old (pre-phylloxera and ungrafted) and only 0.8 hectares in size. As you may know, after the grape blight in the early 1900s, almost all grape vines were destroyed and all new plantings were grafted onto American vines that were resistant. 99% of all vineyards are based on grapes grafted onto the American vine but there are still a number of authentic, very small vineyards that still have the unique original vines that have not been grafted and the Cisma is one of these rare versions.

The Cisma is already among the international top and has achieved cult status (especially since there are only a very limited number of bottles of this top wine). The wine was aged for 24 months in French oak barrels and then bottle-aged for more than a year. This is a very complex wine. In the glass the wine has a beautiful ruby red color. It has an intense nose with seductive aromas of red and black berries, with fine roasted notes, soft fresh herbs, leather, truffle, licorice and beautiful mineral notes (pencil point). Intense, powerful with an impressive attack with flavors of candied fruit. In the mouth the attack is very refined with silky tannins and beautifully refreshing acidity. Perfectly balanced with a very nice structure with a persistent and long finish. Clearly one of the largest Riojas in existence. Only 1070 bottles of this unique wine were made. All bottles are numbered.
