Quasar Rioja Reserva 2014
Bodegas Ondare, whose winery is in Viana 10KM from Logrono, the Riojas capital, has all the advantages of a bodega which was conceived and designed with a new philosophy, and equipped with the very latest vinification equipment, housed in spacious, tastefully designed buildings. The whole process of production and ageing, from the arrival of the grapes at the winery through to the extraction of the must, its fermentation at low temperatures and the selection of locally-produced yeasts, is carried out with the most advanced equipment.
Each grape variety was fermented separately in temperature controlled vats lasting 16-18 days at 28-38C. Aged for 16 months in American and French oak casks of the Bordeaux type.
Leather and spice of traditionally made Rioja on the nose. Smooth and subtle on the palate, with strawberries and vanilla ice cream sustained through to a long finish with well integrated tannins .
Everyday Serving Suggestion
At room temperature to accompany slow roasted meats, shepherd's pie, moussaka or mature cheese.
