GLORIA de Ostatu 2011


The oldest vineyard. Made from grapes from our oldest and beloved vineyard, "Revillas". Low production but high quality plot  that makes possible a fleshy and concentrated wine, with a great  aging potential. The tempranillo at its best.

Tasting notes

Intense cherry colour with deep red reflections. Good fruit expression (cherries, greengage plums and ripen black fruit) accompanied by sweet spices and fine toasts. Subtle minerality, reminding its terroir. In the mouth it has a very good fruit complexity and acidity. Oily, direct, fresh but with a warm backgrownd. Balsamic notes of licorice. Honest in its depth with influence of the oak, leaving always the main character to the fruit.

Intense cherry color with garnet reflections.

Highlights aromas of fruits such as cherries, claudia plums and black fruit in seasoning, accompanied by sweets and fine toast. Subtle minerality, a reflection of its homeland.

In the mouth it provides very good concentration of fruit and acidity. Oily and fresh, but with warm essence. Balsamic notes of licorice. Franco in its length with influence of present oak, although always leaving prominence to the fruit.
