Tasting Notes

Soligamar estate bottled Rioja comes from vineyards located between 500 to 700 metres above the village of Tudelilla in the Rioja Baja district. The vineyards are on rocky soils which aids drainage. The vines are planted 1.5 metres apart and yield small quantities of intensely flavoured juice. Winemaking is in the hands of Carmelo Ortega whose grandfather first discovered the true potential of this unique vineyard location. The Soligamar Rioja wines are exceptionally well made with great structure and elegance. This Crianza Rioja is beautifully made with attractive notes of vanilla oak. Aged in a mixture of French and American oak for around 12 months.

Wine Making Notes
