Ontañón Rioja Reserva

£13.69

BODEGAS ONTAÑÓN RIOJA, SPAIN
13.5% | 6 x 75cl | Cork
Tempranillo 95% , Graciano 5%

Ontañón’s Rioja portfolio is predominantly Tempranillo-based, however the Reserva and Gran Reserva wines blend 5% Graciano with 95% Tempranillo. Graciano, native to the Rioja region, is high in acidity, colour and tannin – beneficial for those wines which are destined for a more prolonged maturation. It also adds even more ‘grace’ and elegance to the final wine.

Production

Reservas are only produced in years of exceptional quality – and from the most select vineyards. The Tempranillo is sourced from La Pasada, and the Graciano from La Montesa vineyard. After a long maceration the wine spends 12 months in 60% American and 40% French oak (both used and new), followed by 24 months in bottle.

Tasting notes

Aromas of bramble fruit with spice and lightly floral notes. On the palate plum and blackberry fruit flavours combine with ample acidity, minerality and earthy notes. It has a fine structure, and supple tannins give elegance and length.

Food match

Drink this Reserva with lamb, roast pork or mushroom risotto.
