Ontañón Rioja Reserva
Ontañón's red wine portfolio is based around the Tempranillo grape, with a little Garnacha (10%) blended into the Crianza.
Grape: Tempranillo 95%, Graciano 5%
Vineyard: Bodegas Ontañón
Alcohol: 13% Vol
The Reserva and Gran Reserva wines are 95% Tempranillo blended with 5% Graciano. Graciano, native to the Rioja region, is high in acidity, colour and tannin - beneficial for those wines which are destined for a more prolonged maturation.
Aromas of bramble fruit with spice and lightly floral notes. On the palate plum and blackberry fruit flavours combine with ample acidity, minerality and earthy notes. It has a fine structure, and supple tannins give elegance and length.
