Brief Description

Tasting Notes

Ondarre Rioja features spice and leather on the nose with a smooth and subtle creamy palate of strawberries, vanilla and integrated tannins. With multiple awards and accolades, we consider it the best wine of its type available.

About

Founded in 1986, Bodegas Ondarre is a relatively new winery. They quickly established themselves as an outstanding producer with elegant, distinctive wines and their Riojas continue to win award after award, including a gold medal at the International Wine Challenge. They are based in Viana, about 6 kilometres from the centre of Rioja.

This Rioja is a blend of three grape varietes, Tempranillo (75%), Mazuelo (15%) and Garnacha (10%). Each of these is fermented separately before blending and ageing in a mixture of French and American oak barrels for 16 months.

Initially, we went in search of a top quality Rioja for two restaurant clients, one local fine dining restaurant and the other, the world famous Gleneagles hotel. Having tried goodness knows how many, we went for Ondarre as it stands head and shoulders above the others. Both restaurants now include this on their wine lists and we are delighted to offer it online.

Ideal with...

Roast lamb works very well with this big wine as do most red meats and game. It also goes exceptionally well with a cheese board and especially with mature hard cheeses.
