Winemaker's Notes

The 40-year-old vines that are used for the Ontanon Crianza grow on the slopes of the Sierra Yergas, just south of the River Ebro in Rioja Baja. The grapes need the warm summer days to ripen to full maturity, but also the cold nights to increase acidity levels. The wines of this mountainous region of Rioja are known for showcasing crisp acidity as well as a full and dense yet elegant fruit profile with notes of mineral and herbal extract that come from the unique soils of the region. The wine expresses subtle aromas of black cherry with overtones of spice and offers voluptuous fruit within a delicate framework of natural acidity that opens up and deepens over time. Our Crianza pairs well with roast chicken, vegetables, pork and game.
