Bodegas Tarón is the northernmost winery in Rioja, situated in Rioja Alta.
The grapes come from the best vineyards with an average age of 50 years and located in the shelter of the Obarenes mountains. Bush trained and picked by hand.
The fermentation of this wine is carried out in stainless steel tanks with a total of 18 days of maceration and daily punching. It spends 1 full year in tank before putting it for the first time in new American oak barrels, where it remains for 24 months. Once the aging time is over, it spends a full year in storage where it is further refined, and being ready for bottling. Before being marketed, the wine rests for at least 6 years, rounding it up in the bottle.
Intense and concentrated aromas, where predominates ripe fruit accompanied by toast and spices provided by the oak. Light notes of eucalyptus and a characteristic final mineral touch. In the mouth fills the palate with firm, elegant and silky tannins. The extraordinary acidity gives the wine balance and complexity. The sensations of fruit and spices remain for a long time.
