Ondarre Rioja Blanco "Rivallana" 2017

 

Producer Note

Bodegas Ondarre, is based in Viana, a historic town six kilometres from Logrono, 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.

Vineyard

The grapes are grown in vineyards covering 1,200 hectares around the winery, at the point confluence of La Rioja, Alava and Navarra. The area offers an optimum climate and terroir. The vines are grown in clay based soils with high iron and chalk content.

Winemaking

The grapes were carefully sorted upon arrival at the winery and the three varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures of between 14 and 16°C. The wines were matured on their lees for two months, with periodic racking to add complexity. Carefully blended showcasing wonderful freshness, aromatics and pure fruit flavours.

Tasting Note

A light and refreshing white Rioja made from a Viura blend delivering notes of exotic fruits, wild flowers and ripe pears through to a zesty finish.

Serving Suggestion

Excellent as an apéritif or with lightly flavoured dishes.

Grape

Viura 75%, Verdejo 15%, Tempranillo Blanco 10%
