Tasting Notes

This family-run winery is located in the old Jewish quarter of Labistada, in Rioja Alavesa, in a building that dates back to the 13th century. Beneath the building is a network of underground caves (some excavated in the 1400s) which form a natural cellar for approximately 500 barrels. Generations of the family have been involved in winegrowing and winemaking, and their love and passion for their land and wine lives on with the current owner, Carlos Fernandez Gomez.

Carlos works with approximately thirty hectares of vineyards which face the Toloño mountain, tended with the greatest care by wine growers from Labastida and San Vicente. He feels the key to get the best results from the vineyards is the right choice of soil and grape variety, plus their orientation together. The range of varieties grown, some of which are on 100+ year-old vines, are mostly Tempranillo, red and white Garnacha, Viura, Graciano, and Malvasia, which is grown only in the oldest vineyards.

El Primavera is made from 100% Tempranillo; the grapes are hand-harvested from three vineyards located in south Labastida, with an average age of 20+ years. Alcoholic fermentation is in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks, then the wine is aged for approximately four months in new American and French oak barrels. Alc./vol.: 13.0%.

Tasting note: Bright cherry/burgundy colour, with slight purple hues. Aromas and flavours of dark, wild berry fruits - blueberry and raspberry - with notes of vanilla spice, aromatic herbs, menthol, and violets. Medium-bodied, dry, well balanced, with a long, finish.

Pairings: Grilled meat dishes (beef and lamb), earthy vegetarian dishes, rice dishes, tapas, and white meats (chicken and pork).
