Torre de Oña

The value of being singular

Torre de Oña Reserva is the result of an exhaustive knowledge of our best plots. A modern wine, raised in contact with French and Caucasian oak, that highlights the personality of a unique estate. A wine with elegance, character, colour and freshness. Elegance and length that will seduce Rioja Alavesa lovers’ palates..

The 2014 harvest

After a growth cycle with very favourable weather, our estate showed excellent canopy development and condition at the end of ve- raison, pointing to a copious, top-quality vintage. The care devoted to our vineyards ensured we picked superb quality grapes from the sec- ond week of October. Green pruning and cluster thinning operations allowed us to make a Torre de Oña with an excellent balance of alcohol content, acidity, aromas and polyphenols.

Grapes

95% Tempranillo blended with 5% of Mazuelo, sourced from the Altos de Vallecilla, Calvo and Berzal plots that surround the winery.

Winemaking

The grapes were picked manually and kept refrigerated until they reached 4 °C (39 °F). After destemming and crushing, the grapes were vatted for ten days at a temperature below 10 °C (50 °F); a cold soak to highlight the characteristics of this grape. After alcoholic fermentation and maceration lasting 16 days, 80% of the wines were put in new French and Caucasian oak barrels, where they underwent malolactic fermentation until late January 2015, with two bâttonages a week.

Aging

The wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels (40%), French oak barrels with two wines (35%) and new Caucasian oak barrels (25%). The wine was racked three times employing traditional meth- ods. It was bottled in October 2016.

Tasting notes

Clean, bright, ruby red with an intense pink rim. Great aromatic intensity, typical of this Rioja Alavesa terroir, with notes of dark wild berries, blackberries, blueberries against a background of incense, cedar oil, ground coffee, liquorice, black pepper, mints and aniseed. Powerful entry; fresh with a good structure and a sweet, persistent tannic load. Pleasantly big aftertaste where notes of wild berry jam, liquorice, peppers, cedar oil and aniseed return in harmony.

Food pairing

The perfect match to all kinds of stews, casseroles and meat-based recipes. Also ideal with spicy sauces and medium-aged cheeses.
