Characteristics of Horizonte de Exopto

Horizonte de Exopto is a red wine from the D.O. La Rioja produced by the Exopto winery. This wine is a blend of three different grape varieties; Tempranillo (80%), Graciano (10%) and Garnacha (10%).

The grapes used come from different zones. The Garnacha grapes come from Monte Yerga, at altitudes around 1,100 metres, while the Tempranillo and Graciano grapes come from Ábalos, on the left banks of the river Ebro. The vineyards are old, between 50 and 80 years old. The soil varieties also vary, while the Garnacha and Graciano varieties grow on sandy soils with boulders, the Tempranillo variety grows on calcareous-clay soils.

After having been selected with care, the harvest is carried out manually and the grapes are transported to the winery in small 12kg capacity boxes. The vinification process begins with fermentation, which is carried out at temperatures between 25º and 28ºC in oak vats and concrete tanks for one week. Maceration then takes place for three weeks, followed by the final process of ageing.

Horizonte de Exopto ages for one year in French oak barrels, 20% of which are first use.

Exopto actually derives from latin and means to “desire with great strength”. This could not be more apt for the sensation you feel when you try wines by this winery for the first time. These are wines from La Rioja which deviate from the norm and show a strong personality.

Sight Intense and deep ruby red colour with maroon edges. Clean and bright wine with a high robe. Nose It is initially very powerful and intense but, as it opens up, the wine becomes more complex. Aromas of red and black fruits, raspberries and blackberries are perfectly assembled and aligned with very fine and elegant toasted aromas provided by the oak. Hints of spices are also noticed along with milky, balsamic and smoked nuances. Seductively complex set with plenty of nuances to discover. Taste After a very good attack, wide and juicy, with a significant load of fruits, a very nice mid palate is displayed with a good acidity and very polished, elegant and silky tannins. Good mineral finish with a long aftertaste. A balanced Rioja wine.
Sight Intense purple colour with violet trims. Clean and bright. Nose Impressive amount of aromas that ranges from roasted and smoked to ripe fruit, mostly black with a touch of liquor, and different spices that emerge very subtly. Its intensity increases as it opens up. Taste Very tasty Rioja wine, full of ripe black fruit accompanied with well integrated notes of oak. Some spicy touches. Ripe tannins and a long lingering finish.

Bodegas Exopto is the project of a Frenchman from Bordeaux, Tom Puyaubert, a barrel seller passionate of La Rioja, its vineyards and its culture. The main idea of ​​his project is based on making different wines within the historic context of Rioja: wines with more colour and freshness, with better expression of the fruit, and with a finer adaptation of the oak. It is the perfect evidence of a complex balance between modernity and tradition, where the balanced assemblages of the traditional red varieties of Rioja, Tempranillo, Graciano and Grenache, comprise the expression of his wines.
