Description

Crianza from Viña Ijalba, the first Organic Estate in Rioja.

90% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano combine in this Riojan masterpiece. Aged for 12 months in a mix of 1st, 2nd and 3rd fill French oak barrels this wine has the prefect balance of ripe red berry and cassis fruits and oak tannins. Designed to love bottle age this wine has a minimum of 18 months before release but has a good few years until it reaches it’s peak. Try with a range of meatier pasta dishes and make sure that you always have another bottle handy, as one is rarely enough.

Gold Medal – International Organic Wine Awards 2019 (2016 vintage)

Decanter magazine March 2020 issue – Sarah Jane Evans MW, Simon Field MW – ‘Plums and cassis contrast nicely with savoury smoky bacon notes; dense and succulent with a long velvety finish’.

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.
