Product Description
Details

Made mostly from old-vines Tempranillo, complemented with a tiny amount of Mazuela (Carignan), 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 were cold-macerated prior to alcoholic fermentation and subsequently vinified in stainless steel tanks under strict temperature control.

Then this Spanish red wine from Torre de Oña was blended, after which a 80% of 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 2016 was aged for a further 12 months in the bottle before its release.

Aerate this red wine from La Rioja 30 minutes before drinking.

Nose

This classy blend of Tempranillo and Mazuela conveys intense aromas of wild berries, with subdued notions of underbrush, freshly baked bread, coffee, cedar and tobacco.

Palate

Pleasant and smooth, this wine from 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 forest berries.

Our personal opinion

Rich and aromatic, Torre de Oña Reserva 2016 pairs well with all sorts of hearty dishes.

The Torre De Ońa (2015) has been delivered to me and one bottle opened immediately with my wife and mother in law. Such a respectful commission expressed the opinion that it is one of the best bottle tasted in our house.
