This is a much fresher style of Rioja than you might think. No use of oak and focusing on single varietals in this case Garnacha. Mid bodied and insanely drinkable. Grapes are handpicked before spontaneous fermentation & a short maceration in concrete tanks. Once the alcoholic fermentation is done, it falls by gravity into smaller concrete tanks before ageing for 1 year and a half in concrete tanks and the rest in bottle.
Notes on the producer
Bodegas Moraza has been in the Moraza family for six generations, but it was when Janire Moraza convinced her father and uncle to convert their 18 hectares of land to organic farming techniques that things got truly interesting. Today, the varietal wines produced by Janire and Patricio come from vines located amid thriving biodiversity in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Rioja Alta. Unlike many modern Riojas, tailored to an international market, Bodegas Moraza uses purely traditional methods, resulting in fresh, oak less and authentic characteristics. Rather than mixing grapes from different estates to produce the familiar taste of conventional Rioja, the wines are the result of the complexity of the terroir.
