    Ostatu Rioja Crianza '19


    Ostatu Rioja Crianza '19

    Bodegas Ostatu is a family winery located in the heart of the Basque Rioja Alavesa region, in the village of Samaniego. The Sáenz de Samaniego family has been farming in the area since the 16th century—for so many generations, in fact, that the family name and the village’s name are the same. The winery has been growing grapes for over 250 years.

    The Ostatu Crianza is an outstanding value and introduction to the terruño-driven wines of village-designated Rioja Alavesa. All of the grapes for this crianza come from exceptional, high-altitude, goblet-trained vineyards of organically farmed Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, and Mazuelo grapes. Samaniego is one of the most important villages in Rioja, providing fruit of exceptional quality and structure, ideal for producing long-lived red and white wine. Ostatu Crianza is a fruit-driven and lively wine, with a singular personality derived from the addition of 20–30% carbonic maceration wine in the blend, which is traditional in Rioja Alavesa.

    This bottling has aromas of dark fruits, violets, and a hint of leather. On the palate, the wine is fresh and vibrant (thanks in part to the carbonic maceration), with flavors of plum and cherry, and a subtle earthiness. It’s easy drinking yet complex, and overdelivers at this price point. Pair it with grilled lamb chops or jamón and aged Manchego.
