Founded in 1985, Bodegas Ondarre have formed trusted relationships with the highest quality growers around the village of Viana. Their continued investment in the winery and barrel stock alongside the hardworking viticulturalists have validated Ondarre as a standard bearer for quality in La Rioja. This traditionally made Reserva Rioja has been aged 16 months in American and French oak barrels to impart subtle flavours and aromas to bring complexity and maturity.
A classic Gran Reserva Rioja with a mature bouquet offering rich fruit notes, plenty of spice, tobacco, leather and raisin characteristics. A combined aging of 5 years in both barrel and bottle before release has produced a complexity and elegance in the wine that is typical of high quality Rioja.
Bodegas Olarra have been quietly rising to iconic status in Rioja since 1973. The Gran Reserva is the flagship wine, the wine that all other Gran Reserva's are bench marked against. A classic blend of Tempranillo 90%, Grenache 5%, Mazuelo and Graciano 5%.
Only the best grapes are selected to produce the Coto de Imaz from one of the regions best known producers. Tempranillo bush vines are aged between 35 to 55 years old and are low yielding, producing grapes with superb concentration of flavour balanced by vibrant acidity.
This bold, spicy, silky smooth Rioja comes from Bodega Lanzaga, a well known estate making wines from historical, old vine vineyards. Telmo Rodríguez has become a critically acclaimed winemaker, who has made wine in Burgundy and Bordeaux, before setting up Lanzaga in 1994.
Bodegas Pujanza take a Burgundian approach to Rioja, focusing on the nuances between vineyard sites and paying attention to the particular features of each vintage. Their aim is to create Rioja in a fresher, more elegant style, with good back-bone. The Hado comes from several vineyard sites in Laguardia and is an ideal introduction to the wines of Pujanza.
