Characteristics of Martelo

Martelo is a red reserve wine made with Garnacha Tinta, Tempranillo, Mazuela and Viura (Macabeo) varieties in the D.O.Ca. Rioja by the Torre de Oña winery. 

Located in the town of Páganos, in the prestigious Rioja Alavesa region, the Torre de Oña winery dates back to 1985. However, since 1995 it has been run by La Rioja Alta, a group that is committed to combining tradition and modernity and that produces wines in Rioja, Ribera de Duero and Rías Baixas. In 2016, the winery modernised their facilities, including the addition of a new, sophisticated optical grape sorter that works according to the winemaker’s needs, and a new transport system that means grapes reach the winery as in-tact as possible.

Of the 44 hectares owned by Torre de Oña, Martelo's grapes come from three selected plots. Strains over 60 years of age planted in shallow and barely fertile soils that depend entirely on the year’s weather conditions. That is why this wine is only made in vintages that are rated as very good or excellent. The grapes are collected in 20 kg boxes.

In the winery the Martelo grape sits in cold stores until it reaches 4ºC. It is destemmed, pressed and then macerated for 9 days at a temperature below 10ºC. After alcoholic fermentation has finished, malolactic fermentation takes place over 96 days in French and American oak barrels with weekly batonnage. It ages for 24 months in American (80%) and French (20%) oak barrels.

Tasting notes Martelo

Martelo 2014 is a mature red wine with notes of red and black fruit, a spicy background and balsamic touches. On the palate, it is structured, balanced and has a pleasant acidity. It has a pleasant, long and persistent aftertaste.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
