Product Description
Details

Made mostly from old-vines Tempranillo, complemented with a tiny amount of Mazuelo, Torre de Oña Reserva is produced in La Rioja.

Manually harvested in October and separately vinified according to the variety and plot of origin, the grapes of this Spanish red wine by Torre de Oña were cold-macerated prior to alcoholic fermentation and subsequently vinified in stainless steel tanks under strict temperature control.

Then this red wine from La Rioja was blended, after which it completed malolactic fermentation and a 18-month ageing period in three types of barrels: 40% in new French oak barrels, 35% in 2nd year barrels and 25% in new Caucasian oak barrels. Racking was performed twice during the process.

Finally, Torre de Oña Reserva 2014 was aged for a further 12 months in the bottle before its release.

Aerate 30 minutes before drinking. Drink through 2027.

Nose

This classy Tempranillo from La Rioja is characterized by some intense aromas of wild berries, balanced with notions of underbush, freshly baked bread, coffee, cedar and tobacco.

Palate

Pleasant and smooth, this reserve red wine by Torre de Oña has a well-balanced acidity, a good structure and some polished tannins. Long and pleasant finish, with remembrances of fine wood, balsam and red berries.
