Quasar Gran Reserva 2008, Rioja

Tasting Note

Deep ruby red with brick hues, this mature wine shows aromatic complexity of red berries, liquorice and hints of smokiness with earthy and savoury notes. The flavour is smooth, long and with good backbone.

Producer Note

Bodegas Ondarre, is based in Viana, a historic town 6 kilometres from Logroño, Rioja’s capital. Founded in 1986 it has quickly become one of the standout producers in the region with its elegant and distinguishable style. Their most acclaimed wines are their Reservas, which win top awards and critical approval every year. They attribute their success to the hard work in the vineyards and their continual investment into the winery and barrel stock. They use both French and American oak casks to help them obtain the incredible character in their wines. As well as their Reservas they produce a few thousand cases of a single varietal Graciano. A real rarity due to the low yielding nature of the vine.

Winemaking

Each grape variety was fermented separately in temperature controlled vats lasting 16-18 days at 28-30ºC. Aged for 16 months in American and French oak casks of the Bordeaux type.

Serving Suggestion

At room temperature to accompany roast meats, game and mature cheese.
