Professional Wine Reviews for Torre De Ona Rioja Reserva 2014

Rated 92 by James Suckling
This shows lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit character. Full and creamy with hints chalk and stone character. Needs another two or three years in bottle but already impressive.
Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
The 2014 Reserva is mostly Tempranillo with 5% Mazuelo from the plots Altos de Valecilla, Calvo, Martelo and Berzal around the winery in Páganos-La Guardia. The destemmed and crushed grapes underwent a ten-day cold soak and fermented in stainless steel. 80% of the volume matured in oak barrels for 18 months. I noticed quite a lot of oak, and winemaker Julio Saez said they used up to 40% new barrels. The wine comes through with strong toasty and smoky aromas and roasted coffee notes. The palate has abundant, chalky tannins that might need some more time in bottle and/or powerful food. 40,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2016.

Winery Torre De Ona

Region: La Rioja

La Rioja is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown of Spain's wine regions, and the deliciously drinkable, complex and fascinating single red wines and blended wines of this special region have gone down in history as some of the finest on earth. La Rioja is located in the north of Spain, close to the Atlantic coast, but shielded from the cold and wet weather by the expansive Cantabrian mountains. As such, the climatic conditions in La Rioja are ideal for ripening the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes used in the production of the fine red wines the region is famous for. Wineries in La Rioja take great pride in their heritage and traditions, and the winemakers of the region employ a range of time honored techniques alongside more modern methods to make the most of their superb crops each year.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
