Winemaker Notes

The Ostatu Crianza is made from vines that average over 50 years of age, a green harvest is used to reduce yields.

Blend: 90% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano, Mazuelo, and Garnacha

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
TA 92
Tim Atkin

Great value for money at only €11 a bottle in Spain, this comparatively old-vine blend of mostly Tempranillo with Graciano, Mazuelo and Garnacha all comes from vineyards at above 600 metres. Aged in older wood, it’s a beautifully balanced Crianza with smooth tannins, lots of colour, crunchy blackberry fruit and chalky freshness. 2019-23. Alcohol: 14%

Ostatu Winery Image

Bodegas Ostatu is a family winery located in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa region in the town of Samaniego. The Saenz de Samaniego family has been in the area for many generations. The winery dates back over two hundred and fifty years. The vineyards, which are protected by the Sierra de Cantabria range, are composed of chalk and clay and the average age of the vines is 50 years. The estate is comprised of over forty hectares of vines located in and around the town of Samaniego. The poor soils and the unique location at the foot of this mountain range together create a special microclimate that is very favorable to the Tempranillo grape. Until recently all the wine was made in the carbonic maceration process and intended for early consumption. This philosophy changed when Hubert de Bouard de Laforest of Chateau Angelus saw the vineyard sites of the family and expressed an interest in collaborating on a special project. He realized that the age of the vines, combined with the unique orientation of the vineyards, could produce drastically different wines that could compete on the world stage. By changing from carbonic maceration to traditional fermentation and by reducing yields in the vineyards, Ostatu became able to produce wines that live up to their full potential. Iñigo Saenz de Samaniego, the youngest of six brothers and sisters, is now at the helm of the winemaking. Building on the innovations of the joint project with the French, Iñigo is continuing to seek elegance through the modernization of the family’s wines.

Rioja

Tempranillo

View all products

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
