Montes Obarenes 2017

VINEYARDS 25% Tempranillo Blanco from the surrounding area of Haro, 65% Viura, 5% Malvasía and the remaining 5% consisting of a blend of Garnacha Blanca and Calagraño from our vineyard Las Laderas de Ollauri.
HARVEST: Grapes were handpicked in 200 kg boxes and sorted by hand at the winery.
WINEMAKING: Fermented and aged on fine lees in new French oak barrel - 80% of the wine - and aged on fine lees in an ovoid concrete tank - 20% of the wine-.
SOIL: Vineyards grow in calcareous-clay soil with high limestone content.
CLIMATIC YEAR:

The 2017 vintage will go down in history as "the year of the frost". Then, on April 28th, the eve of San Prudencio, temperatures dropped below zero in the majority of our vineyards. This event played a definitive role in our approach to the vineyard throughout the vegetative cycle. Due to low-yield production and the summer drought, all work in the vineyard focused on avoiding the loss of freshness in the different varieties. This was earliest vintage in Rioja’s recorded history, and the final result has been exceptional: very fragrant and balanced wines, thanks to the fresh nature of our vineyards’ locations, among other factors.
