Description

Fine example of a joven or unoaked Rioja, this Tempranillo Ecológico is grown in certified organic vineyards in the Haro area of Rioja Alta. Fermentation is all in steel, no oak involved in either fermentation or maturation, with the aim of showing the purity of the Rioja Alta terroir.

It’s very clean, violet-red in colour with pronounced summer fruits notes of blackberry, raspberry and strawberry. The palate is crisp and focused, fine tannins and a gentle acidity framing all that sumptuous fresh fruit, a fine line of minerality flowing through to the finish. A really delicious, every-occasion red.

Producer: Bodegas Carlos Serres

French vigneron-wine consultant Charles Serres left Bordeaux for Spain in the nineteenth century to escape the ravages of villainous vine louse Phylloxera, which was devastating the country. Founding Bodega Carlos Serres in 1896 in the Haro Station District in Rioja, Serres merged wine making techniques imported from France with native Rioja grapes to make elegant, Bordeaux-style wine.

The company's 60 hectare vineyard, Finca El Estanque, in south-eastern Haro has mostly chalky-clay soils with a high gravel content, perfect for growing Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo, Maturana Tinta and Viura, which are used to make their Reservas, Gran Reservas and limited production Onomástica. Charles' role as winegrower-exporter and his instrumental role in the formation of the Rioja Wine Exporters Syndicate in 1907, precursor of today’s Rioja Designation of Origin Control Board, makes him one of the key personalities in Rioja’s vinous history.
