Laderas de Ostatu
In 1970, the Ostatu Winery was born, attached to the stately building built in the 18th century as an inn-inn at a strategic point such as the road between Laguardia and Vitoria-Gasteiz and which has served as a family home until 2009. A place in the Matarredo de Samaniego neighborhood, where the Sáenz de Samaniego family has been making wine for generations. A heritage that we share with you so that you can live and feel our passion and love for the Rioja Alavesa vineyard and enjoy our winery and wines.
Its past as an inn-venta, in Basque Ostatu, has imbued them with that hospitable character in which everyone is welcome. A place where they make and preserve wine in an artisan way and where the essence of tradition is breathed, in spaces such as the txoko, the wine bar, the patio or the spectacular memory room where the older vintages and which was nominated for the 2018 Restaurant&Bar Design Awards in London.
The highest vineyard. Made with Tempranillo and Viura from “El Portillo”, planted at an altitude of 630m. South facing slope and protected by small foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria. A wine where the singularity of the terroir of height and advanced age is expressed, each vintage, with a delicate floral character.
Intense and purple cherry color, aesthetic concentration. On the nose, there is nostalgia for ripe red and black fruit (cherries, red and black plums), a soft floral touch with some wild wink. Deep balsamic background and sweet space. Varietal frankness of Tempranillo. Tasty mouthfeel with fruit density, sensation of freshness and longitudinal trace of acidity. With volume, structure, sweet and polished tannins that extend the sensation of fleshiness. It ends with a terroir mineral key, good projection and long life.
