Cerro Añon Rioja Crianza 2016- Bodegas Olarra
A forward and attractive, modern, style of Crianza comprised of 85% Tempranillo, 10% Mazuelo and 5% Graciano from vineyards in Rioja Alavesa and a smaller portion from Rioja Alta.
Lifted aromatics of violets and bramble fruit - complemented by perfumed jasmine notes, pepper and spice. Substantial on the palate, with black fruit, ripe tannins and a gently toasty, savoury finish.
The Grupo Bodegas Olarra started out in 1973 with the construction of a wine cellar for making great Rioja wines on the outskirts of Logroño. Their ethos is to utilise modern techniques, with a traditional culture. The group now comprises of three bodegas (Olarra, Ondarre & Bodegas y Viñedos Casa del Valle) spread across 1200 hectares.
