Organic wine, aged in American oak barrels for 24 months, plus 16 months of bottle ageing
A wonderful Reserva. This wine is rich on the palate yet beautifully elegant. Incredibly balanced, with soft tannins and a long spicy and smooth finish.

BODEGAS LAS ORCAS
The winemaker Raimundo Abando is the 3rd generation of winemakers in his family, dating back to 1900. Most of the production is Tempranillo but he also makes a great white from the Viura grape and like to blend in some Graciano in the red wines. The Rioja Alavesa is sheltered from the hotter conditions lower down the Ebro Valley by the Cantabrian Mountains, enabling Rai to make wines with higher acidity, lower alcohol and crunchy freshness.
