Osoti - Rioja Crianza 2013 - Organic Spanish Wine
Awarded 91 points and a Gold Medal at the 2016 International Organic Wine awards this beautiful Rioja is a testament to the hard work that goes with maintaining their Organic production processes.
It takes passion and dedication to produce an organic wine of this quality..
"All you see is held together in a delicate balance. We should learn to respect all creatures. We are all connected to the great circle of life.
Our wine is born from vines grown on old, rich land, cultivated using generations old traditions by agricultures with their history from the old Roman crossroads around the River Ebro.
We look at the sky, the light and temperature, we keep an eye on the vines, and we prepare the land and look after the vines to produce a tastier and more expressive wine, fruit of La Rioja."
This vineyard has a certificate of organic production comprising both growing and the vinification procedures. Osoti Crianza was aged in French oak casks for 12 months.
Cherry red in colour with ruby tinges at the rim. Clear and bright to the eye with a nice depth.
Clean with a very intense aroma conveying a lovely harmony between fruit and oak. Richly fruity on the nose with balsamic and sweet notes. Hints of both ripe and fresh red and black fruit with spicy and roasted notes reflecting the input from the oak.
A powerful and full taste in the mouth with a presence of ripe wild berries (redcurrant and blackberry), liquorice and sweet sensations from the tannins. It has a well-balanced acidity matching this wine perfectly. Good body, soft, well-rounded and velvety tannins. Powerful and richly fruity retronasal persistence and a long aftertaste.
Game or hearty meats are ideal to go with this wine. Well suited to
accompany oily fish, red meat, different types of cheeses, appetizers etc.
Also recommended to be served on its own or in good company.
