Description

VINEYARDS

These two old vineyards are situated at 500 m altitude. In this Valley we get a plus of rippening because of it’s more protected than in The mountain, in Rivas de Tereso. That means more weigh in the wine, with the character of the traditional Tempranillo from Rioja Alavesa. Always keeping the freshness tipical from Sierra de Toloño. Organic vineyards. 


BLEND 

Tempranillo and a little percentage of Graciano that is mixed as traditional in the vineyards. 


WINEMAKING AND AGING

Fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts and aged in large oak foudres of 3000 liters during a year. Not fining or filtering, maintaining the philosophy of minimal intervention in the vineyard and the cellar. 6.500 bottles produced.


People in Villabuena de Álava used to be called Raposo. This wine has the character and purity of this fantastic area. Crunchy blackberry and red cherry fruit segue into a palate that’s savory, dense and serious with the potential to age. I paired this wine with other Rioja wine and found the Raposo remind me of the wine in Ribera de Duro - more concentrate and warm.


Sandra Bravo started Sierra de Toloño in 2012 making wine from vineyards in the area of Rivas de Tereso, a small hamlet of the foothills of the Toloño mountain range. An altitude of more than 600 meters, at the limit vine-growing, brings a great freshness. She can recover some old vineyard and produce a small quantity but high-quality wine. Tim Atkin MW name her a "Young Winemaker of 2019" to recognize her work.
