This is another excellent wine from Bodegas Onatanon in Rioja Baja. From selected vineyard plot grown at some of the highest vineyards in Rioja overlooking the town of Quel.
For me I think this is one of their star wines that overdelivers quality for the price. Incredible value.
Fresh redcurrant and cherry hints on the nose combine with lifted herbal notes. The palate has complex juicy bramble fruit, black pepper, as well as more savoury, herbal characters to add interest. A classic Rioja – nicely integrated. 4 – 6 months in new oak barrels so not a Crianza classification.
