According to Bodegas Ontañón, 2016 brought another beautiful harvest to Rioja Baja. There were ideal weather conditions in the region throughout the growing season, leading to healthy grapes, balanced ripening across all vineyards, as well as a lengthy harvest (49 days) that allowed for unhurried, selective picking of grapes.
This was further aided by exceptional weather experienced in Rioja across September and October.
The resulting wines express rich fruit characters of blackberry, blueberry and redcurrant. They are high quality, structured, complex and meaty with a good ageing potential.
