Details

Produced in DOCa Rioja, Ostatu Crianza is a blended Spanish red wine made by Bodegas Ostatu. 

The main component is Tempranillo, nuanced with a 10% of GrenacheGraciano and Mazuela (Carignan). Planted with 25 to 50-year-old vines, the vineyards are located near the village of Samaniego, an area with clay-limestone soils at roughly 600 metres of altitude. 

Harvested by hand in late October, the grapes were first cold macerated before being fermented in stainless steel tanks for 12 days. Interestingly, a portion of the grapes went through a whole bunch carbonic maceration fermentation. 

After that, Ostatu Crianza 2018 was aged for 12 months in 2nd year oak barrels. The wine was gently filtered before bottling.

Decant this Crianza red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Nose

Fruit-forward and gently spicy, this blend of Tempranillo and Grenache, Graciano and Mazuela conveys some toasted and balsamic notes, with an intriguing gunpowder remembrance.

Palate

This wine from bodega Ostatu is fresh, balanced and round. The spicy and toasted notes are more prominent, acidity is crisp and tannins are smooth. Long finish with a remembrance of wild berries and balsam.

Our personal opinion

Well-balanced and yummy, Ostatu Crianza 2018 is a textbook Rioja.
