  • 2020 was a relatively smaller harvest than the previous two years. Mild weather during winter and a warm, wet spring resulted in challenging situations in the vineyard. The harvest took place under good conditions, and although yields were lower than in previous years, the quality was high, and the official rating for the 2020 vintage was ‘Very Good’. 

The grapes were fermented at controlled temperatures of between 28°C in stainless steel tanks with carefully selected yeasts. Malolactic conversion took place in concrete vats, followed by 12 months’ barrel ageing in 225 litre oak casks, of which 65% were American oak and 35% were French Allier oak. The barrels were of varying ages from brand new to seven years, imparting complexity to the resulting wine. The wine was gently fined and filtered before receiving 10 months’ bottle ageing prior to release.

Winery

The fruit for Hugonell Crianza comes from vineyards in Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta, and a little from Rioja Oriental. The average age of the vines is approximately 15 years and the soil patterns in the vineyards are a combination of the well-known limestone-clay-alluvial mixture, which is found in most of Central Rioja. 

Rioja has many different styles, from the traditional strawberry, oaky Bordeaux-influenced wines to some of the more modern, lighter styles. We searched for the best of both worlds – a fruit-driven modern style of wine at Joven level and more concentrated, typical flavors in the Crianza and Reserva levels. Carefully selected growers from this area produce the Hugonell Joven. The Ondarre winery, which is located 10km from Rioja’s capital of Logrono, is the specialist division of The Bodegas Olarra Group for producing Crianza and Reserva wines. We are delighted to offer this
the unique trio of wines with their original, distinctive packaging.
