This is a remarkably fresh wine despite plenty of textural material, with deep, subtle richness and power. Aching of chalk, with grapefruit tang and the tart sweetness of lemonade fruit. Layered flavours of cereal, lemon barley and citrus rind. Herb lush, it has perfectly pitched soft roundness texturing a long, fine line of salty acidity.
They also considered the question of barrel aging. Traditional Rioja wineries have of course relied on American oak for aging, while more modern peers shifted to French oak, often with a portion new. Because Oscar and Eva wanted to make wines that reflect their land, they wanted to minimize the effect of wood. To this end, they started with a mix of used French barriques, demi-muids and foudre, and as the project develops, they hope to adopt longer aging and even bigger neutral barrels. Interestingly, because of this, these wines do not qualify for the Crianza/Reserva/Gran Reserva designations which require aging in small barrels.
