Tentenublo Wines

Tentenublo Wines

Tentenublo winery combines several microclimates, with vines between 15 and 70 years old, scattered across 22 plots, at the foot of Mount Cantabria, at an altitude of 450-650 meters. They are mainly planted classic for Rioja varieties such as Tempranillo, Garnacha and Viura. The plots are differently affected by the Ebro River, the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, so all the wines of the manor bear a unique imprint. Roberto Oliván Iglesias inherited 6 hectares of vines when he was 16. He works in the fields all day and travels to the nearby school in the evening. He also managed to complete oenology at the University of Rioja, and work elsewhere in the area before returning to his lands in 2011. He is now 33 and has nearly nine hectares. The deep knowledge of the land and every plantation in it is not just impressive, it is a testament to the great value of traditions and pride of origin in the world of wine.

Rioja

Rioja

Undoubtedly, this is the homeland of the oldest and most respected red wine in Spain, whose rival is only Jerez. The vineyards trace the flow of the Ebro River for about 100 kilometers between the towns of Haro and Alfaro. The area is named after the river that flows through it, the Rio Oja. It is divided into three separate areas; Rio Alta, the highest, where wines are considered elegant and with balanced acidity; Alavesa average (here the acidity is a little more pronounced) and Baja, the lowest, where the significantly warmer climate determines the more pronounced saturation and density in wines. Overall, the best wines come from Alta and Alavesa, although many are a combination of the two. The main grape here is Tempranillo, often blended with Garnacha and sometimes Carignane. All wines in Rioja in the top category must be aged in oak, and historically the American oak is preferred. Nowadays, however, many wineries use a combination of American and French oak. The ripening of American oak is what gives the more traditional Rioja red wines the distinctive notes of coconut, vanilla and sweet spice. The time that Rioja wine spends in a barrel dictates which of Rioja's official ageing categories will take its place on the label: Joven, Crianza, Reserva or Gran Reserva. Rioja Joven wines are intended for consumption within two years of harvest. They spend little or no time in oak - jóven is the Spanish word for "young". Crianza red wines are aged for at least one year in oak and one year in bottle and only on the market in the third year. Reserva red wines spend at least one year in oak and cannot be presented for a full three years after harvest. Gran Reserva undergo a total of five years of ageing with at least two years spent in oak barrels.

Grenache

Grenache

Grenache (Garnacha) is a red-wine grape grown extensively in France, Spain, Australia and the United States. Grenache is the French name for the grape, while in Spain it is known as Garnacha, and on the island of Sardinia they call it Cannonau. In France it is most commonly found in the classic Southern Rhone Blend ( it is the main grape variety in Chateauneuf-du-Pape) but also plays a main role in one of southern France's signature Rosè wine style in Provence. In Spain, Garnacha is the key constituent in the prestigious wines of Priorat.
