Andy's Tasting Notes
Richly textured with juicy hints of raspberry, plum and cassis. Produced with no oak influence to accentuate the vibrant fruit. A great introduction to the exemplary range of Tobia wines which we stock.
Price per bottle £9.50
Now installed (since 2010) in purpose-built premises in a village near Haro, this award – winning bodega is really pushing the boundaries of what is possible in Rioja. Oscar Tobía’s approach is to combine the best of Riojan tradition with a thoroughly up-to-date attention to detail in the vineyard and the cellar. To supplement the fruit from his own vineyards he works closely with carefully selected growers to control yields and quality and therefore has access to grapes from all three of Rioja’s sub-zones. By means of an extensive and ongoing research project he is constantly developing his understanding of fermentation techniques. The basic approach however, is fairly straightforward – healthy, fully ripe fruit is fashioned into a range of excellent wines, from un-oaked, early drinking styles to classic crianza and reserva wines and the outstanding top-of-the-range Alma de Tobía selection. Oscar’s wines are regularly selected by the Rioja regulatory authorities as the best of the region.
