75cl * 14% ABV * Rioja, Spain
Rigorous selection of only the best fruit from high altitude vineyards, and from Bodegas Ontañón's new winery in the centre of Quel, comes one of the new Rioja classifications: a 'Vino de Pueblo', which can only be produced from family-owned vineyards within a named village. This highly anticipated release doesn't disappoint!
Established at the start of the new Rioja classification system allowing wines to be labelled according to their origin, Bodegas Ontañón's portfolio highlights the winery's heritage, and family’s long relationship, with the town of Quel.
Pronounced aromas of ripe black fruit and blueberries, backed by spice, mocha, fig and balsamic notes. The palate is generous with complex bramble and plum fruit characters, well-integrated oak and bright acidity. Structured yet elegant.
