Rioja Alavesa is the smallest of the three wine-producing sub-regions in Rioja, Spain and is situated to the north of the Ebro River. It is the closest of the three sub-zones to the Atlantic Ocean and thus the one most influenced by its cooling effects. This winery’s unique style is a reflection of its superior plots within the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria, and is distinguished by its use of stringent grape selection methods and use of new French Oak barrels.
WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES
25 months of aging in French Oak has resulted in a mature, complex and meaty red wine. With elegant aromas of ripe red fruit, and spicy notes on a very clean toasted base note it shows a unique delicacy. On the palate it is fleshy and full, with an incredibly fresh finish.
