Intro to Ontanon Rioja Crianza –
Ontanon Rioja Crianza in Spain has aromas of black cherry, spice and toasty oak with flavours of bright intense tangy black and red cherry fruit with fresh acidity on the palate. It is silky with soft ripe tannins and a lingering finish.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Intense, ripe and powerful aromas of black fruit with hints of liquorice, mocha and spice. Bright black cherry and plum fruit on the substantial palate with fresh acidity and balancing tannins characterise the Ontanon Crianza. A very complete and satisfying Crianza with a lingering finish. Produced from 40 year old vines grown just south of the River Ebro in Rioja Baja. The wine is produced predominantly from Tempranillo blended with Garnacha and following a long maceration period, the wine spends 12 months in 60% American and 40% French oak barrels (both used and new). This is followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.
The producer –
Raquel, Ruben, Leticia and Maria Pérez Cuevas are part of the 5th generation of the Cuevas family to make wine in Rioja Baja. Their father, Gabriel, inherited parcels of vineyards just outside the town of Quel on the higher slopes of the Sierra de Yerga mountain range. He was determined to produce wine that embodied the region, where he believed some of the highest quality wines from Rioja are made, and soon acquired more vineyard in the area creating the Ontanon estate of today.
Drink with –
This wine pairs particularly well with roast chicken and game.
