Orube Seleccion de Familia 2017 Rioja
Orube Seleccion de Familia 2017 Rioja is a powerful wine - both intense and complex while retaining elegance
Before swirling the glass aromas of cocoa, confectionery and vanilla dominate, but once the wine is swirled notes of black fruit and stone fruit appear, along with an intense aroma of liquorice, cloves and balsamic notes. On the palate it is powerful, rich and shows ripe tannins. The back palate is rich in ground coffee flavours. Elegant, complex and with a long finish.
Orube Seleccion de Familia 2017 Rioja is made from Tempranillo grapes grown on an estate located in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabrica at an altitude of 650 metres. The grapes are highly concentrated, small in size, having been carefully tended throughout the year to produce a perfect level of ripeness which delivers the fruity character so typical of Orube. Hand harvested, selecting the best bunches which are brought to the winery in small boxes, where the selection process is continued, and the grapes are then fermented in small vats which help the maceration process and produce the appropriate levels of structure for this wine.
