Rioja, Spain Spain

Vineyards situated between approximately 300 and 600 metres altitude. High percentage of small plots of less than 1ha, where both traditional and modern technological cultivation methods are used with the average age of vines are 25 years old and yield between 45-60 hl/ha.

Although Rioja is a small region, it has heterogeneous soils with a balanced structure, alluvial terrains with a harmonic composition of sand, silt and clay, rounded stones and slightly alkaline with active limestone. Low organic matter content and low level of nutritional elements with lack of water during summer.

The wine making team is led by Rodrigo Espinosa, Agricultural Engineer and Oenologist from the University of Chile, with wide experience in Chile, the United States and Castilla La Mancha.

Wine Makers Tasting notes; 

After ageing for 12 to 14 months in medium-toast, American oak casks which contribute spicy aromas and flavours, the wine is garnet-red with tawny hues. Outstanding notes of cask ageing underscore its fruity personality. Smooth yet robust flavour; well structured, with a lingering finish. It’s ideal to accompany all types of red meat, lamb and game, and perfect with cheese. 

Rioja is one of the world's most exiting wine regions.
