Medium-bodied and off-dry, with caramel, roasted walnut and iodine flavors. Builds nicely on the palate to a long, caramel-tinged aftertaste. Drink now. 12,000 cases made. Score: 91. â€”Bruce Sanderson, 2008.
|Bodegas Ochoa is family owned and operated, and all of their grapes are grown in their estate owned vineyards. All of their wines are produced organically; however, the bodega has not obtained organic certification. Javier Ochoa is the wine maker and oversees the entire operation in the vineyards and bodega. Javier has also served as general manager of EVENA, the local oenological institute, and continues to do a lot of research at EVENA. Javier is slowly turning over the winemaking and other responsibilities to Adriana, his daughter. Adriana has done extensive training in winemaking in
Bordeaux and Australia and has been awarded ‘Best Young Female Winemaker in Spain’ by several Spanish and British wine magazines.
