2021 Ontanon Ecologico Rioja, Bodegas Ontanon 13.5%

100% Tempranillo and fully organic.  Ontañón have 57ha of low-yielding organic vineyards at altitudes of around 500m.  They also have 300 barrels dedicated to organic wines.  There is a long maceration of the grapes (over 20 days) with fermentation at controlled temperatures. Ecológico spends five months in American and French oak barrels (new and 1-2 year old barrels).  This has juicy fruit flavours of ripe plum and dark cherry accompanied by gentle oak which brings a hint of spice.   May be drunk now or kept for a short while.

As well as farming organically Bodegas Ontañón are certified with Wineries for Climate Protection.  They employ a range of sustainable practices in both vineyard and winery including controlled irrigation systems and using plant and grass cover to improve soil texture.  They have also planted several hectares of pine forest locally and maintain the local oak forest.  They are an entirely carbon neutral operation.
