Tasting notes - This a beautifully rounded wine - the oak has allowed it to soften a touch and pick up subtle vanilla and spice notes while preserving most of its youthful fruit.
A classic and meaty Rioja blend of rich strawberry fruit,
beautifully integrated vanilla and savoury characters.
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. The Bodegas Olarra Group
has worked for years at the forefront of wine producing initiatives and we work closely
with Olarra/Ondarre on the Hugonell Crianza and Reserva. We are delighted to offer
this unique trio of wines with their original, distinctive packaging.
Aldeanueva de Ebro ("new hamlet of the Ebro") rises against the wind on the
plateau that runs from the slopes of Mount Yerga to the River Ebro. The vineyards
contain different types of soils, pebble and clay, at widely varying altitudes, which,
together with intensive sun exposure and low rainfall, define the vineyards of
Aldeanueva, offering great potential for quality grapes, characterized by their
intense colour, medium-high alcohol and great health.
The grapes were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks using
using carefully selected yeasts. The wine was then aged for a period of 12 months in
a combination of American and French oak barriques.
This a beautifully rounded wine - the oak has allowed it to soften a touch and pick
up subtle vanilla and spice notes while preserving most of its youthful fruit.
At room temperature to accompany roast meats, game and mature cheese.
