Rioja Blanco Barrique Fermented 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Bodegas Ondarre is located in Viana, a historic town 8 kilometres from Logroño (La Rioja), rich in tradition, still preserving traces of its medieval fortress. Its name comes from a hundred-year old country house, the property of the founders of the wine cellar. Production is solely composed of Reservas, Cask-fermented Whites and Cava sparkling wines, with a limited number of bottles. Wines of fine quality which Bodegas Ondarre want to consolidate among the most exceptional palates. Bodegas Ondarre have the most advanced vinification technology. Ageing is in new American- or French-oak casks. The bodega has made special efforts to renew its stock of barrels so as to obtain this marked character in its wines which is giving them so much prestige. The barrique fermented Rioja Blanco is a delicious, balanced, fresh white Rioja made from the Viura grape.
