Country: Spain Region: Rioja
Vintage: 2017 Colour: Red Style: Dry
Producer: Bodegas Ochoa
This wine was created in 1987 by Javier Ochoa, who decided to take a chance on this privileged stand-alone varietal, which gives wine of excellent quality. At the time, it was unusual to name the variety on the label and we caused quite a stir by letting consumers know what they were enjoying.
The finesse to make it crianza is achieved by aging it for 12 months in 225L American oak casks, after which it is rounded off in the bottle, where its characteristics continue to develop gradually and naturally.
Tasting Note: It has very soft tannins and a delicious aroma of red berries.
Food Matches: It is a perfect wine to match any food or to enjoy with light tapas; easy to drink, it invites to a second glass. From a grilled steak to a stew or a cheese platter.
