Bodegas Ondarre, is based in Viana, a historic town six kilometres from Logroño, Rioja's capital. Founded in 1986 it has quickly become one of the standout producers in the region with its elegant and distinguishable style. Their most acclaimed wines are their Reservas, which win top awards and critical approval every year. They attribute their success to the hard work in the vineyards and their continual investment into the winery and barrel stock. They use both French and American oak casks to help them obtain the incredible character in their wines. As well as their Reservas they produce a few thousand cases of a single varietal Graciano. A real rarity due to the low yielding nature of the vine.
The grapes are grown in vineyards covering 1,200 hectares around the winery, at the point confluence of La Rioja, Alava and Navarra. The area offers an optimum climate and terroir. The vines are grown in clay based soils with high iron and chalk content.
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of between 24 to 28°C, with daily pump-overs. Malolactic fermentation took place in in new oak casks from Missouri and Central France. In order to preserve the concentration of fruit, the wine was fined naturally with a series of successive rackings and was then rested for 18 months in bottle, prior to release.
Deep cherry red with inky hues and a complex bouquet of fruit aromas, spices and smoky aromas. On the palate, this wine has a smooth texture but with backbone and lots of concentration, very elegant in style.
This is a treat with slow roasted red meats, game dishes and mature cheese.
