Bodega Ontañón Reserva 2010
93 points Highly Recommended - Decanter Magazine Mature Rioja Panel Tasting
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. We found the wine also possesses nuances of vanilla, coffee and toasted oak spice. Enjoy now until 2020.
“Cedar and vanilla notes followed by smoky, toasty elements. Full-flavoured and finely balanced with knitted tannins and dark mocha fruit. Drinking Window 2018 - 2024"
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, 2010 was an excellent vintage and offers superb value - one to buy before it’s gone!
