Hugonell Reserva Rioja 2018

A traditional and rich Rioja showing vanilla, red fruit and
tobacco flavours, spicy and savoury.
Producer Note
Rioja has many different styles, from the traditional strawberry, oaky Bordeauxinfluenced 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 flavours 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
unique trio of wines with their original, distinctive packaging.
Vintage
2017 was a challenging year marked by harsh frosts that affected the vineyards in April,
followed by summer drought. Ultimately these factors resulted in a reduced yield. The
warm, dry conditions ensured the vines were in excellent health and the harvest was
one of the earliest in history of Rioja. The grapes harvested were high quality with
excellent varietal expression.
Vineyard
The fruit for Hugonell Reserva comes from vineyards in Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Alta. The
average age of the vines is approximately 25 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.
Winemaking
A careful selection of the fruit took place, enabling winemaker Javier to perform long
periods of maceration in order to ensure good extraction of tannins, aroma and flavour
components. Each grape variety was fermented separately in vats at controlled
temperatures of between 28 to 30°C. The wine was racked into large American oak
vats before being left to age for 18 months in oak casks. After bottling, the Reserva was
bottle aged in the cellar to develop its bouquet and harmonious character.
Tasting Note
This is a classically made Rioja, which shows wonderful aromatic complexity of red
berries, liquorice and hints of smokiness, cedar and spice oak flavours. A warm and
heady palate leads to a mature and rich finish.
