Bodegas Ostatu Rioja Blanco 2021


The secret lies in the high-altitude, bush-trained vineyards of indigenous viura
and malvasía grapes coming from the villages of Samaniego, Laguardia, and
Leza in Rioja Alavesa at an altitude of 580m. These villages are located directly
at the convergence of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean climatic influences,
which mold the character of the vintages. This unique soil and climate also lend
a certain austerity and structure to Ostatu wines, which differentiates them
from the Rioja wines of other subzones. Ostatu is pure Alavesa mountain wine,
born of the tension and energy of an extreme climate.
