DOC Rioja Livor Tempranillo
Viña Ijalba were the first estate in La Rioja to go organic and in the last decade or so they have built a loyal fan base. This top-selling Rioja is made from 100% Tempranillo. Its popularity in no doubt due to the beguiling raspberry jam character which has no rough edges. Velvety smooth from start to finish. Serve with supper any day of the week; you'll never tire of its charms.
Comprising 80 hectares of vineyards planted around Logroño, San Vicente de la Sonsierre and Valle del Oja, the innovative Viña Ijalba was the very first organically certified estate in La Rioja (1994). The vines are planted on abandoned opencast mines where the thin, stony soils ensure that yields are kept low and the quality of the fruit is high. The estate was also the first to make a single varietal rioja from the graciano grape in 1995.
