2013 Ondarre Rioja Reserva (Bottle - 1/75cl)
Bodegas Ondarre is located in Viana, Logrono at the heart of the Rioja region. They're a very modern producer, using the latest technology to harvest the grapes and create the wine. The nose is very typical of a classic Rioja with leathery notes and a touch of spice. There is a definite smoothness on the palate with strawberry tones and a hint of vanilla, the acidity is very well balanced topped off with a lengthy finish. This is a great value wine, and would easily compete with more expensive Riojas.
