Made from vines averaging 40 years old. Low yields. Fermented in stainless steel and then aged 12 months in 70% French oak and 30% American oak.
One of the first projects from Ostatu was a wine named Ostatu. Made from vines that average 40 years of age, a green
harvest is used to reduce yields. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak.
With a beautiful garnet/crimson color, the Ostatu exudes aromas of cacao, spices and toast. The palate is very even and
dense, showing lush fruit that is framed by mineral undertones.
"The 2008 Ostatu, a wine composed of 95% Tempranillo with the balance Garnacha, Graciano, and Mazuelo. It sports an aromatic array on mineral, potpourri, and a confiture of black fruits. Dense, savory, and ripe on the palate, it has the structure to evolve for 2-3 years and will provide considerable pleasure between 2014 and 2023.
