Decanter Fine Wine Encounter

Bodega Otazu Premium Cuvée

Otazu-Premium-Cuvée-web.png

Bodega Otazu Premium Cuvée is produced in the region of Navarra. The vineyards of Otazu have their own microclimate with Atlantic influences and strong northerly winds. The varieties are planted in small, separate plots to allow each to be treated uniquely. After individual hand-harvesting, and rigourous hand sorting, the varieties are fermented in stainless steel before transfer to French oak. The wine is aged in oak for 12 months, and spends 14 months in bottle before release.

An intense ruby colour, the nose offers an abundance of red fruits with a spicy, toasty background. Dense and rounded on the palate, with plums and blackberries joined by cinnamon, nutmeg and balsamic. Drink with red meats, stews, hard cheese and even dark chocolate!

Alcohol: 14%

Grape varieties: 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Tempranillo, 15% Merlot

SEÑORIO-DE-OTAZU-TINTOweb.png

Señorio de Otazu is a Vino de Pago produced in the region of Navarra. The vineyards of Otazu have their own microclimate with Atlantic influences and strong northerly winds.  Vinos de Pago must be single estate wines made from a single traceable parcel. The wines have much lower yields that other DOs and the vines must be older than 10 years old. A blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Hand harvested from individual plots and cold macerated for a week prior to fermentation to allow the aromatics to develop. Aged in new French oak for 16 months and in bottle for 3 years before release.

 

Deep, brooding cherry colour. An elegant, perfumed nose of spice, mineral and balsamic with fresh forest fruits. Complex and silky in the mouth, with the fresh dark fruits and well integrated toast and spice from the oak.

Alcohol: 14.5%

Grape varieties: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Tempranillo, 5% Merlot.
