Description

Cocoa coated, rich black fruits in this quality, toothsome wine

A reunion with history and not grown anywhere else in the world Maturana Tinta is a very rare old ancient variety in Rioja. Fermented for three months in French oak barrels and aged for another 10 before bottling. An intense colour with aromas of black fruit, blackcurrant, black pepper and chocolate. On the palate it is vibrant with intense dark fruit flavours and a savoury balsamic acidity.

‘Potently aromatic with succulent blackcurrant and hits of cumin and clove. Creamy texture and silky finish.’ Bronze Medal – Decanter World Wine Awards 2013 (2010 vintage)

Viña Ijalba currently has more than 90 hectares of vineyards spread over several terrains around Logroño, San Vincente de la Sonsierra and the Najerilla Valley. 70% is harvested by hand. Ijalba is also very much involved in restoring native, almost forgotten grape varieties to Rioja - varieties that bring a distinctive element to their wines.
