SAVOURY / EARTHY REDS

Full-bodied Old World reds - RIOJA RESERVA, Ontañon. Rioja, Spain

2005 RIOJA GRAN RESERVA, Ontañon. Rioja, Spain

Bin: 2654
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Rioja is of course Spain's most famous region, but Ontañon are based in the area of Rioja Baja, long regarded as the inferior part of the region. Along with other top bodega like Palacios Remondo, Ontañon have turned that reputation around. The key to quality is altitude, the higher vineyards producing much fresher, more elegant wines than those lower down in the hottest section
Grape Variety: 95% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano, aged in 40% French and 60% American oak for 3 years
Producer: A relatively new winery by Rioja standards, founded only 25 years ago. They have a huge vineyard area - 250 hectares
Old Bridge Rating: Soft and creamy but still fresh; classic Rioja, ready to drink now but with years of life ahead of it

£24.00 £21.50 per bottle
