Decenio Rioja Joven, Bodegas Las Orcas (75cl)
Made from the estate’s youngest vines. It is light and harmonious Rioja, with a fruit driven palate and soft tannins, and is a complete pleasure to drink.
Region: Rioja, Spain
Tasting notes/pairing options: Youthful nose with aromas of strawberries, dark plums and hints of black pepper. Very fruit driven on the palate with a smooth texture and a nice balance.
The winemaking: The grapes used for this wine come from the Las Orcas estate’s youngest vines. After destemming the grapes undergo 5-6 days of cold maceration, being pumpedover three times a day. Fermentation takes place over 7-8 days at between 25- 28º C, then the wine is racked to stainless steel vats where malolactic fermentation takes place.
We are a close family business and are currently in our second generation. We are based on our natural lavender farm, Yorkshire Lavender in the North Yorkshire countryside.
So why wine?
With a member of our staff, Timi, a trained sommelier; it seemed crazy to let that enthusiasm and experience go to waste.
Wine starts in the ground! Just like lavender the correct soil, conditions and care are vital to grow excellent grapes to make exceptional wine.
Our commitment to our natural lavender farm along with Timi’s enthusiastic expertise has led to a developing interest in natural, organic, bio-dynamic wines.
