Description

This is a family owned winery in Galilea, Rioja Baja, founded in 1998 by José María Nestares to make wine from Temparanillo grapes planted at the beginning of the 1980s on a plateau between the valley of Ocón and the Jubera River.  Their aim is to make wines that reflect their origin and the quality of fruit, representing the land and the family’s winemaking traditions, using minimal intervention and always being respectful of the environment.

The grapes come from the finca “La Zapatera” and are harvested by hand.  Fermentation is carried out in cement tanks. The maturation is carried out in French barriques for 12 months, where the yeast is stirred daily. Processed with minimal intervention, this wine is not filtered or has any added sulphur..

From 100% Temperanillo this wine shows colour of a purple red with brownish reflexes.  Amazing aromas of balsamic, bitter chocolate, black cherry and blackberry are followed through by a flavoursome palate of dense cherry, chocolate and nuts and oak. Interesting and complex with a more than lingering finish.

Exceptional with Grilled Beef or Lamb, Mature Cheeses, Spicy Ragu.
