Winemaker's Notes

Orlegi is a return to the traditional light, fruit-forward wines of Rioja Alavesa. Utilizing whole-cluster fermentation for some of the grapes and indigenous yeasts, this is a classic, young Tempranillo from Rioja for everyday drinking.

Leaner and tighter than the 2011, the 2012 Orlegi shows plenty of bright fruit and berries, and its pronounced acidic backbone makes it dangerously drinkable.

Pairings - Charcuterie: chorizo, salami, lomo, saucisson sec; fresh, creamy cheeses; fresh herbs: oregano, basil; roast chicken; bacon; mayonnaise, aïoli; grits, polenta; roasted potatoes.

Critical Acclaim

"Brilliant ruby. Sexy, fragrant black raspberry, floral and spicecake scents show very good energy and clarity. Lively and precise, offering silky red and dark berry flavors and a touch of cola. The floral note comes back on the finish, which clings with very good tenacity and just a hint of tannins."
