Producer Note
Bodegas Ondarre was founded in 1985, with the aim of creating wines which
showcase the region’s distinct terroirs. The cooperative winery is situated in the town
of Viana which overlooks the Rioja Valley in Rioja Oriental. Bodegas Ondarre has
formed trusted relationships with the highest quality growers in the area, with whom
they have been working since 1985. 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
Each grape variety was fermented separately in temperature controlled vats at 28 to
30°C, which lasted for between 16 to 18 days. The wine was blended and then
aged for 16 months in American and French oak Bordeaux type casks imparting
subtle oak complexity. During the maturation the wine was racked four times, in
order to gently extract phenolic compounds by oxygenating the wine. This produced
a softer wine which exhibits great varietal fruit character.
