Robert Parker 90 Points GOLD MEDAL - CONCOURSE MONDIAL DE BRUXELLES 2013 Rioja is the leading wine region of Spain producing predominantly red wines in the north of the country. When in the 1880s phylloxera struck in the Bordeaux region many of its vignerons crossed the border into Spain, bringing their winemaking skills. Bodegas Ondarre, whose winery is in Ivan, 6 KM from Logrono the Riojas capital, has all the advantages of a bodega which was conceived and designed with a new philosophy, and equipped with the very latest vinification equipment, housed in spacious, tastefully designed buildings. They are, without doubt, one of the most modern bodegas in the Rioja, rivalling the most advanced in the world. Grapes : 100% Tempranillo Region : Spain / Rioja DOC Maker : Javier Martinez de Salinas Notes : Intense ruby red in colour. Smooth and elegant with figs and a touch of cinnamon on the palate, full-bodied and a long finish. Serve : At room temperature to accompany roast meats, game and cheese. ABV : 13.5% Suitable for Vegetarians

Rioja is the leading wine region of Spain producing predominantly red wines in the north of the country. When in the 1880s phylloxera struck in the Bordeaux region many of its vignerons crossed the border into Spain, bringing their winemaking skills. They set out to serve mainly the needs of the French market with wine made in Rioja according to French methods; the barrica, identical to the Bordeaux barriques of 225L, was introduced to mature the wines for 2 to 3 years and is still used in Rioja to this day. Bodegas Ondare, whose winery is in Viana 10KM from Logrono, the Riojas capital, has all the advantages of a bodega which was conceived and designed with a new philosophy, and equipped with the very latest vinification equipment, housed in spacious, tastefully designed buildings. The whole process of production and ageing, from the arrival of the grapes at the winery through to the extraction of the must, its fermentation at low temperatures and the selection of locally-produced yeasts, is carried out with the most advanced equipment. This modern equipment is used in conjunction with the well-tried, traditional methods and the old wisdom of the bodegueros of the Rioja which have given such fame and prestige to the wines of the region. Bodegas Ondarre is, without doubt, one of the most modern bodegas in the Rioja, rivalling the most advanced in the world. Grapes: 100% Tempranillo Vinification: Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats, at between 28-30C. Maceration on skins lasted 17 days. After alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats with 2 rackings. Ageing: 24 months in new French oak bariques, 60% in Allier and 40% in Limousin. Racking from barrel to barrel every 6 months. The wine is only released for sale when it is ready for drinking at its best. Serve: At room temperature to accompany roast meats, game and cheese. Taste: Intense ruby red in colour. Smooth and elegant with figs and a touch of cinnamon on the palate, full-bodied and a long finish.
