Mayor de Ondarre Rioja Reserva Ondarre 2011
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.
Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, at between 28-30C. Maceration on skins lasted 17 days. After alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats with 2 rackings.
Deep cherry red with inky hues and a complex bouquet of fruit aromas, spices and smoky aromas. On the palate, this wine has a smooth texture but with backbone and lots of concentration, very elegant in style.
