Characteristics of Kalamity

Kalamity is a red wine produced in La Rioja by Oxer Bastegieta in Laguardia, Alava.

Oxer Bastegieta is a vine grower who started to make Txakoli in the family winery in Kortezubi, a little Bizcayan town close to Urdaibai natural park. He moved to La Rioja to study viticulture and oenology and fell in love with the landscape in la Rioja Alavesa. He took up residence in Laguardia in 2009 and started to examine the area´s vineyards in order to begin making wine.

Kalamity is the culmination of Oxer´s project in the area, a very old vineyard made up of cultivated Tempranillo, Garnacha and Viura varieties following the precepts of biodynamic agriculture. Fermented and aged in French oak barrels, this red wine is pure craftmanship. Only 900 bottles.

Tasting notes Kalamity

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
