Tasting notes - This is a classically made Rioja, which shows wonderful integration of rich and plummy fruit with cedar and spice oak flavours. A warm and heady palate leads to a mature and rich finish.
A traditional Rioja showing vanilla and coconut flavours,
smooth and textured.
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.
The Aldeanueva de Ebro (meaning the "new hamlet of the Ebro") is located on the
windy plateau that runs from the slopes of Mount Yerga, to the River Ebro. The
vineyard consists of different types of soils, from pebble to clay, at varying altitudes.
The soils, together with the intensive sun exposure and low rainfall, define the
vineyards of Aldeanueva. This area offers the potential to produce good quality,
healthy grapes, characterised by their intense colour and medium to high alcohol
Each grape variety was fermented separately in vats at controlled temperatures of
between 28 to 30°C, lasting between 16 to 18 days. The wine was racked into
stainless steel for a period of 12 months and then spent 16 months ageing in
American and French oak barriques, followed by further ageing in bottle. The wine
was only released for sale when ready for drinking at its best.
