Characteristics of Losares

Losares is a red wine produced in Rioja by Olivier Riviere.

Olivier Riviere arrived in Logroño to work with Telmo Rodriguez on his La Rioja project. His career was already extensive, he studied in Bordeos and worked in the area’s wineries, then went to Borgoña to work in Domaine Leroy, one of the area’s most important wineries working in biodynamics.

Losares comes from their own vineyard dating from 1930, it is Olivier Riviere’s single-estate vineyard located in Navaridas, Rioja Alavesa, on sandy-lime soil 700 metres above sea level. The vineyard is planted in the old way, mixing varieties. In this vineyard, the Tempranillo dominates with 95%, and the rest is Mazuelo and Graciano.

The wine production begins with destemming the grape that is introduces to cement tansk where it ferments with its own yeast. The wine is decanted into 500 litre barrels where it is aged for months in order to polarise the tannins and round them off.

The production total for Losares is 600 bottles.

Tasting notes Losares

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.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
