Bodega Ontañón is a family-owned winery located in Rioja Baja. Its vineyards sit high in the Sierra Yerga Mountains outside of the township of Quel, which has been one of Rioja’s outstanding winemaking centres for three centuries. Today, Raquel, Rubén, Leticia and María Pérez Cuevas are part of the fifth generation of the Pérez Cuevas family to carry on the tradition of grape growing in this southern part of Rioja.
A blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano, the wine has spent 24 months in American and French oak barrels (used and new) and 24 months in bottle prior to release. Not made every year, 2005 was an excellent vintage and offers superb value - one to buy before it’s gone! “The wine is ruby red with brilliant violet hues. Its aroma is highlighted by notes of ripe red fruits showcasing raspberries and fresh strawberries. There is a touch of spice and pronounced floral notes. On the palate the wine is soft and smooth with balanced tannins and acidity. Refreshing and lively, it can be drunk on its own or pairs well with roasted chicken, grilled salmon, and pork tenderloin. 93 points” - Wine Enthusiast Magazine. We found the wine also possesses nuances of vanilla, coffee and toasted oak spice. Enjoy now until 2020.
