LA RIOJA ALTA ALAVESA

Leandro Vázquez, a Cuban and citizen of the world, when visiting Spain, decided to flee the American frenzy of big business and delve into the ancient tradition of vine-growing, but from the lavish though strict perspective of a château. When he bought the land it must have been love at first sight and so, with good taste and great care, the Torre de Oña SA winery was born.
The emotion and enthusiasm involved in creating a winery was hindered by something a little more pedestrian, the day-to-day running, always difficult and risky. Finally, Leandro Vázquez decided to leave the...

business, a more than tempting legacy for those seeking new horizons in La Rioja. This situation coincided with the desire of La Rioja Alta, S.A. to complement its traditional style with a new wine, totally independent and different from the Haro sanctuary. Some changes were made after the purchase was completed in January, 1995, focused more on improving and enhancing what was already there than on changing the château philosophy and the modern and powerful wine initially produced by Barón de Oña, S.A.

The nose opens with warm earthy tones. Appealing spice sits alongside dried peel notes and hightoned fruit over a hint of leather The fruit is forward, and a touch juicier than in the past, underpinned by the same spicy notes found on the nose. A keen freshness knits everything together and the balance of this wine is impeccable. Drink from...

TASTING NOTES

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. This wine particularly stands out for its great aromatic intensity, with marked hints of stone fruit (peaches) and white fruit (ripe apples and quinces) against a citrus background of lemon tree leaves. Big, flavoursome and fresh in the mouth, with a well-integrated acidity. Fruity and particularly persistent finish.
