  • Bodegas Navajas Reserva 2011, Navarrete, La Rioja Alta, 14% vol, 75cl

    Bodegas Navajas Reserva 2011, Navarrete, La Rioja Alta, 14% vol, 75cl

    RJ21

    A family winery that was founded in 1918 as Bodegas Arjona, but in 1983 the Navajas family became the sole shareholders and changed its name to Bodegas Navajas.

     

    Navajas believes that the quality of the wine begins in the vineyards and for this reason they monitor and control the vineyards which belong to their growers in the Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja.

     

    The Reserva is 95% Tempranillo & 5% Mazuelo from the oldest vineyards of the Navajas Estate in La Rioja Alta, hand picked at the beginning of October.

     

    In the winery the grapes are de-stemmed, crushed and allowed to macerate before fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. This is followed by ageing in American oak casks for a minimum of 20 months. After bottling the wine spends a further 2 years in bottle before release.

     

    Bright brick red in appearance, the nose has a heady mix of fruit, vanilla and warming spice. The palate is rich and broad with fine fruit, integrated oak, soft tannins and spicy flavours. The finish is very long.

  • Izadi Blanco 2017 “Fermentado en Barrica”, Bodegas Izadi, Alavesa, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    Izadi Blanco 2017 “Fermentado en Barrica”, Bodegas Izadi, Alavesa, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    RJW03

    Bodegas Izadi is based in Villabuena in the Rioja Alavesa, the highest part of Rioja.

     

    The hillside winery (the precipitous slope allows for gravity assisted production) was founded in 1987 by Gonzalo Anton as a modern breakaway from the traditional style of wine produced by other members of his family. As his son Lalo, who now runs the estate, says: “the whole concept of Izadi really started around wanting to produce wine to satisfy the needs of our friends over a meal”.

     

    Izadi produce modern, international wines that are true to their roots and a natural expression of the area.

     

    The grapes for the Izadi wines are grown on 178 hectares of vineyard, all of which are either owned or leased on long term contracts, so they have full control over production.

     

    Fruit for the Rioja Blanco (80% Viura and 20% Malvasia) comes from the Villabuena and Samaniego vineyards.

     

    The must was fermented in 100% new French (Bertomieu), fine grain oak casks, where it stayed for three months. Batonnage (lees stirring) took place daily for the first few weeks.

    The wine is straw yellow in colour with bright green tones. There are succulent citrus and yellow stone fruit characteristics on both the nose and the palate, this is fresh wine – well-structured with a refreshing acidity.

  • Coto de Imaz 2014 Reserva, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    Coto de Imaz 2014 Reserva, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    RJ03

    El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from modest beginnings into one of the best known Rioja producers. Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. They also source grapes from all three areas, but mostly from Rioja Alavesa. Head winemaker Cesar Fernandez oversees production, starting with hand-picking into 350 kg crates to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Modern and intelligently designed, the emphasis in the winery is on temperature control and gentle handling of the grapes.

     

    100% Tempranillo from low yielding vines predominantly from the Rioja Alta region.

     

    The Tempranillo grapes are fermented in El Coto’s  Oyón cellar in large, temperature controlled stainless steel vats that are fitted with advanced technology for the strict control of fermentation and maceration temperatures and colour extraction. The aim, to achieve the right balance between structure and balance in the wines.

     

    The wine is then aged for 17 months in selected 225 litre, American-oak barrels and then for 3 years in bottle before release.

     

    Deep red in appearance with a hint of brown on the edge, the nose is complex with red berry aromas and smoky vanilla. The palate is round, warm and juicy with spicy red fruit and a soft richness. The gentle tannins add a firm structure and provide elegance and ageing potential.

  • Izadi Reserva 2014, Bodegas Izadi, Alavesa, 14% vol, 75cl

    Izadi Reserva 2014, Bodegas Izadi, Alavesa, 14% vol, 75cl

    RJ11

    100% Tempranillo.

     

    Izadi sources their fruit from 186 hectares of vineyards in Samaniego, Abalos and La Puebla de Labarca, all located in Rioja Alavesa. The vineyards are all either owned or leased on long-term contracts, so they have full control over production. The vines are traditionally trained bush vines, a method which Izadi believes gives better exposure to the grapes, something which in turn leads to better ripeness and softer, fuller wines. The vineyards are 600 metres above sea level, so warm days give way to cool nights which encourage the aromatic qualities in the grapes to develop.

     

    Grapes were destemmed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 28ºC, with pumping over several times daily to extract the right amount of colour and ripe tannins. The wine underwent 28 days of maceration before ageing in 225 litre French & American oak barriques for 16 months and over two years further in bottle before release, which qualifies it for Reserva status.

     

    Deep red in appearance, the wine displays beautiful black and redcurrant fruits with delicate hints of tobacco, liquorice and earthy undertones. The palate is rich and concentrated with a lingering, delicious finish.

  • “875m Finca Carbonera” Rioja Chardonnay 2018, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, Rioja Alavesa, 13% vol, 75cl

    “875m Finca Carbonera” Rioja Chardonnay 2018, Bodegas El Coto, Oyón, Rioja Alavesa, 13% vol, 75cl

    RJW05

    El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from modest beginnings into one of the best known Rioja producers. Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa.

Head winemaker Cesar Fernandez oversees production, starting with hand-picking into 350 kg crates to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Modern and intelligently designed, the emphasis in the winery is on temperature control and gentle handling of the grapes.

     

    The grapes for the Chardonnay are sourced from El Coto’s Finca Carbonera estate, which reaches 875 metres above sea level, making it the highest vineyard in Rioja and ideal for the new white grape varieties approved by the Rioja Regulatory Board. A wide diurnal temperature range aids the slow steady ripening of the grapes, meaning they retain fresh acidity and perfumed aromatics.

     

    The Chardonnay grapes were destemmed, cold-macerated and gently pressed at the winery. Fermentation took place at 16ºC in 100% new, untoasted, French oak barriques. After fermentation, bâtonnage (lees stirring) was carried out in order to increase complexity and add texture. All of the wine was aged for 10 weeks in oak after fermentation.

     

    This fresh and succulent Chardonnay displays citrus, peach and tropical aromas alongside delicate notes of vanilla and brioche. On the palate, ripe stone fruit notes are supported by hazelnut and vanilla flavours, which are complemented by a creaminess from the bâtonnage.
