Producer Note

Quasar is produced for us exclusively from Bodegas Ondarre and demonstrate the quality of their Reservas and Gran Reservas which have won them worldwide acclaim.

Vintage

The 2016 season started off with a dry and warmer winter than in average years, followed by a cold spring. Heavy rain during the early summer replenished the water reserves in the soil, ready for the warm summer that followed. The grapes were harvested with good phenological ripeness and flavour development along with balanced acidity and sugar levels.

Vineyard

The vineyards are made up of predminantly clay based soils with high iron and chalk content.

Winemaking

Each grape variety of this complex blend was fermented separately in temperature controlled vats. The fermentation lasted for 16 to 18 days at temperatures of between 28 to 30°C. The wine was matured for 16 months in American and French oak casks of the Bordeaux type.

Tasting Note

Deep ruby red with brick hues, this mature wine shows aromatic complexity of red berries, liquorice and hints of smokiness with earthy and savoury notes. The flavour is smooth, long and with good backbone.

Serving Suggestion

At room temperature to accompany roast meats, game, mushroom risotto and mature cheese.
