    LA RIOJA ALTA
“La Rioja Alta was founded in the town of Haro in 1890. They own 450 hectares of vineyard from which their entire portfolio is sourced, predominantly Tempranillo complemented by Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha. Another tenet is their use of American rather than French oak. The wood is cured for two years outdoors before being shaped and hammered into barrels at their own cooperage. Quite simply, these are some of the finest Rioja's that can grace your cellar: complex, refined, classic but without compromising fruit intensity and to reiterate: wines that speak about where they come from.” Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #202, Aug 2012

TORRE DE ONA MARTELO
Rioja Reserva
La Rioja Alta

New Wine/Background:

This wine is from a single
2 hectare plot at their Torre de Ona estate in Rioja Alavesa.
La Rioja Alta have dedicated a considerable amount of time and money into perfecting the wine and this is the first vintage of Martelo that they have released.
They have spent 20 years identifying the best parcel of the estate –this is a true labour of love.

 

It is predominantly Tempranillo with small amounts of Mazuelo, Garnacha and Viura and spends 24 months in 80% American and 20% French oak barrels. It represents a departure to a slightly more modern style for this bastion of traditional winemaking. The results are brilliant and they see this as being one of their prestige wines in years to come.
