Bodegas Ondarre Valdebaron Blanco White Rioja, 2020

A creamy and savoury Tempranillo Blanco, with delicate aromas of white flowers layered with ripe melon interlaced with ginger through to a deliciously refreshing finish.

Producer Note - Bodegas Ondarre was founded in 1985, with the aim of creating wines that showcase the region’s distinct terroirs. Situated in the town of Viana overlooking the Rioja Valley in Rioja Oriental, Bodegas Ondarre is the only winery in the village of Viana.

They have formed trusted relationships with the highest quality growers in the area, with whom they have been working since their inception. The Reservas are Bodegas Ondarre’s most acclaimed wines, which win top awards and critical approval every year. They attribute their success to hard work in the vineyards and their continual investment in the winery and barrel stock.

They use both French and American oak casks to help them obtain the character in their wines. They also produce a few thousand cases of a single varietal Graciano - a real rarity due to the low yielding nature of this variety.

Vineyard - The Tempranillo Blanco vines are grown in a small number of vineyard sites to the north and northeast of Viana, situated northern bank of the River Ebro. The vineyards are located on slopes ranging from 520 to 690 metres above sea level, which have been formed by small streams running down from the Sierra Cantabria hills, the terrain is uneven with ravines and the occasional small cliff. The vines are sheltered from the harsh northern winds and the wetter, cooler weather fronts by the nearby Sierra Cantabria range.

The south-facing orientation optimises sunlight exposure and warm, dry winds from the south help to ventilate the vineyard, reducing disease pressure. The vineyards are situated on a variety of soil types from sand, gravel, clay and chalk over a limestone subsoil. The topsoil is shallow, just 25 to 40 centimetres deep and as such, the vines take time to develop and establish complex root systems, and these bush vines are old and low yielding. The locals are reluctant to uproot old vine stocks and therefore these vines are noticeably older than those in the surrounding area.

Winemaking - The grapes were carefully selected and gently pressed to retain the aromas. The clarified must was barrel-fermented in new 225-litre French oak with selected yeasts under temperature-controlled conditions. The wine spent a further four months ageing on its fine lees in 225 litre American and French oak barriques and Acacia casks.

Tasting Note - Delicate aromas of white flowers are layered with green apple and pear. Refreshing with an elegant creamy texture, balanced by crisp acidity, this has a deliciously long and mouthwatering finish.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
