Robert Parker: Good balance between acidity and ripening
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening

Grape sourcing

Bush vines represent the traditional vinegrowing method in Rioja, it offers betterconduction for the juices of the plant, protects is from the heat, and offers a better aeration whenthe vine is old enough.• We have selected some 120 hectares, 70 of them are ours. They are classiffied in 17different landscapes, which are later fermented in 17 different French oak vats.• Sustainability is more than a cliché for us. It is part of our philosophy and it is ouronly future.• Most of them (85% in Haro and surrounding villages) are located in Rioja Alta, butthere is an undeniable part of Alavesa (really close to Alta anyway) and Baja.• We have selected and kept 550 clons of Tempranillo that we haveidentified throughout Rioja.• Our range shows the two profiles of ripening of the Tempranillo: that of the red acidfruit (strawberry, cherry) and a darker fruit one (more oriented towards the plum)• We work mostly (with the only exception of Sela) with Vines older than 30 years,when maturity delivers

Malolactic fermentation

All our wines go throughmalolacticfermentation inFrench oakWe installed a radiant floorheating systemto takethe temperature up to 20ºCOnce Malolactic is finishedthe windows of the hall areopened, letting theNorthern winds takethe temperature down(stabilisation)


The wine, a vehicle to transmit sensations, but also a means totransmit a landscape, a Riojan landscape. We want ourwines to show a sense of place• We play with 17 different landscapes every year• We want to respect the vintage, the features that makethe vegetative cycle unique every year (no irrigation, no blend)• Wine is meant to be enjoyed, the palate is the real index, wetry to avoid saturation, we reward elegance• Our range shows the two sides of the ripening of theTempranillo: the red acid fruit (strawberry, cherry) and darkfruit (black plums)• Oak is complementary, never to play a key role
