Red Wine Orben 2019
Availability: In stock
A varietal Tempranillo, this Spanish red wine is sourced from 79 small parcels composed of sandy-limestone soils and planted between 1945 and 1954 in the heart of La Rioja Alavesa.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were meticulously selected, destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Malolactic fermentation was carried out in tanks and oak barrels. After that, Orben 2019 was aged for 12 months in new and 2nd year French oak barrels (50/50).
Finally, this red wine from La Rioja was clarified, filtered and aged for 1 more year in the bottle.
Aerate this Crianza red wine 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Orben is deep ruby with a garnet rim.
This varietal Tempranillo brings aromas of balsam, resin and menthol, which are combined with notes of juicy red fruit, clove and cinnamon over an earthy and mineral background.
This red wine from Bodegas Orben has a meaty body sustained by a crisp acidity. Intense notes of red and black fruit, remembrances of balsam, menthol and garrigue and dim toasted and mineral nuances. This red wine has some mild tannins and a long, toasted finish.
