Characteristics of Ostatu Crianza

Ostatu Crianza is a red wine from Rioja produced by Bodegas Ostatu. This winery is located in Samaniego, a municipality south of Alava (Rioja Alavesa).

Ostatu Crianza is made with Tempranillo (90%) and Graciano, Mazuelo, and Grenache (10%). The grapes come from old vines between 20 and 50 years old, located in the areas of Samaniego, Leza and Laguardia, at an altitude of 580 m above sea level. The vineyards are planted on clay-limestone and gravel soils.

Ostatu Crianza grapes ripen under a Mediterranean climate with an Atlantic influence, some icy cold winters and hot summers.

The development of Ostatu Foster begins with a manual harvest and subsequent transportation of the grapes in boxes of 15kg during the first week of October.

Once in the winery, there is a cold maceration and fermentation at a controlled temperature of 26°C for 15 days. Afterwards, malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks and the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

After its preparation Ostatu Crianza is not subjected to any stabilisation or filtration process.

Alcohol: 14.0%
Serve at 16ºC

Tasting notes Ostatu Crianza

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.
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.
Sight Ruby red with violet tones, upper middle layer. Nose Clean and intense, dominated by fruity aromas (blackberry) and liquorice. Taste Tasty, long and well structured. Discrete lactic notes from the barrel and an attractive touch. Rounded, noble and with broad fleshy tannins.
