The main variety is Tempranillo, with some brushstrokes of Grenache, Graciano and Mazuela (Carignan). The grapes were harvested by hand from 25 to 50-year-old estate-owned vineyards located at approximately 600 metres of altitude.
Cold-macerated before fermentation, a portion of the grapes was traditionally fermented in stainless steel tanks, while the rest was fermented whole bunch following the carbonic maceration technique. Malolactic fermentation took place in the tanks, after which Ostatu Crianza Magnum 2018 was aged for 12 months in 2nd year oak barrels.
Finally, this Crianza red wine was gently filtered before bottling.
Aerate this Rioja red wine in a magnum bottle 40-60 minutes before drinking.

The red wine Ostatu Crianza Magnum is deep ruby with some purple tinges.
This blend of Tempranillo with Grenache, Graciano and Mazuela conveys aromas of wild berries, toast and spices, with some balsamic notions and a gunpowder remembrance.
Smooth and balanced, this wine from bodega Ostatu is fruit-driven, lively and gently spicy, with savoury tannins, a hint of oak and a long finish with some toasted and balsamic remembrances.
