Ontañón Rioja Crianza '16

Ontañón is a family-owned winery based in Quel, a village in the Rioja Baja. They have 250 hectares of vineyards in the region, and a winery near the vineyards. They also have a separate winery near Logroño that is just used as a barrel ageing hall, and this was built in 1998.

The village of Quel is at 484 metres altitude, and the highest vineyard, the 90 hectare La Montesa, is at 600–700 metres altitude. This helps offset the relatively high temperatures of the Rioja Baja, the most southerly part of the Rioja region.

Their Crianza is a blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% old-vine Garnacha. The wine is aged in a combination of French and American oak for one 12 months.

The 2016 offers dark and red berry fruit and spice on the nose. It is medium-bodied, shows off those classic oak spices on the palate, and finishes long and complex. Excellent with rack of lamb or anything mushroom based.
