Tasting Notes

Located in Cuzcurrita de Rio Tirón (in La Rioja Alta), Bodegas Tobía (pronounced toe-BEE-ya) is an artisanal winery owned and operated by one of Spain’s top winemakers, Oscar Tobía. Oscar holds a Master’s degree in Oenology and Viticulture and is considered part of Rioja’s new generation of winemakers who combine professionalism, the spirit to embrace regional traditions, and the best of what new technology can offer.

Family-owned vineyards constitute 30 hectares, with a further 55 hectares coming from controlled local vineyards. Vineyards are planted to Tempranillo, Mazuelo (the Spanish name for the French grape Carignan), Garnacha, Viura, and Malvasia. Total production is approximately 450,000 bottles, with a cellar of 1,500 oak barrels (American, French, and Hungarian).

This wine is a blend of 65% Viura (from 28 year-old vines), 15% Malvasia (form wines more than 68 years of age), 11% Maturna Blanca, and 9% Tempranillo Blanca grapes, carefully hand-picked at harvest. All the vineyards are located in Rioja Alta, except those of Malvasia which are in La Rioja Baja.
The must (initially free-run juice) is filtered after a 2-day cold soak, then slowly fermented at a controlled temperature of 14-15°C.

Final fermentation and ageing (on the lees) occurs in new French (70%) and American oak barrels (light toast), with the total duration about 18 months (in the same barrels). After blending, the wine remains in bottle for 6 months before release. Production limited to 23 barrels.

Our tasting note: Intense light straw colour with slight greenish tinges. Complex tropical bouquet reminiscent of warm citrus, pineapple, and ripe mango with smoky notes of cinnamon and sweet vanilla spice. Full, dry, and creamy on the palate; balanced with ample acidity and a long, elegant finish.

Bottled at 13.64% alc./vol. and 1.2 gr./L residual sugar.
