An easy drinking, modern style Rioja, medium bodied with

Producer Note
Bodegas Ondarre was founded in 1985, with the aim of creating wines which
showcase the region’s distinct terroirs. Situated in the town of Viana overlooking the
Rioja Valley in Rioja Oriental, Bodegas Ondarre is the only winery in the village of Viana.
They have formed trusted relationships with the highest quality growers in the area, with
whom they have been working since their inception. The Reservas are Bodegas
Ondarre’s most acclaimed wines, which win top awards and critical approval every
year. They attribute their success to hard work in the vineyards and their continual
investment in the winery and barrel stock. They use both French and American oak
casks to help them obtain the character in their wines. They also produce a few
thousand cases of a single varietal Graciano - a real rarity due to the low yielding
nature of this variety.
Vineyard
The vineyards are situated on Rioja Valley’s northern hills on south-facing slopes, at an
altitude of 550 metres above sea level. The vines, which have an average age of 25
years, are planted in uneven terrain due to several streams that run down the
mountains that mark the northern border of Rioja. The soils are generally poor in
nutrients and very shallow, just 30 to 35 centimetres in depth, which encourage the
vines to send their roots deeper in search of nutrients and water. The soils vary from plot
to plot, but there is a prevalence of clay based soils with high iron and chalk content.
The clay content retains water, which nourishes the vines during the warm summers
and the iron content is an essential nutrient for photosynthesis.
Winemaking
The grapes were fermented with carefully selected yeasts in temperature controlled
stainless steel tanks at 20 to 24°C, to retain freshness and the purity of fruit. Maceration
did not exceed 12 days to ensure the extraction captured the essence of the fruit and
a smooth structure. The wine was racked into large oak vats for a short period of time
before being gently fined and bottled, resulting in an easy drinking style.
Tasting Note
Made in a modern style, this is full of vibrant red-berried summer fruit. Well balanced,
soft and approachable.
