Orube Rioja Crianza 2017
This is a modern and elegant Rioja that makes an ideal companion for any occasion
On the nose this wine has ripe fruit, chocolate and coffee. The palate reflects notes of ripe fruit combined with fine roasted aromas from oak aging. Complex aromas combine with a well-balanced character, elegant tannins and a long finish.
From Solar Viejo, a winery with over 75 years of history. The 'Orube' wines represent the estate's purest expression of the Tempranillo grape, harvested from their 650m high Los Molinos vineyards near the town of Laguardia. The base of this Rioja blend is made with the tempranillo grape. It is complemented by a subtle blend of Garnacha and Graciano, which makes it aromatic on the nose. Aged in a selection of barrels of French and American origin for 12 months with additional bottle aging in cellar.
