Even though the Rio Oja is one of Spain’s best-known rivers, its most important is actually the powerful Ebro, which helped to carve out vineyards that have been producing grapes for two centuries. This buoyant Tempranillo is a classic example of what Spain has to offer, characterized by flavors of juicy cherry and plum, along with accents of citrus and licorice. It’s a delight on its own, but will shine even brighter with Spanish fare like paprika-spiced smoked pork.
Icewine is made by waiting long enough into winter for the grapes to freeze on the vine. This concentrates the grapes' sugars, and allows the excess water to be removed as ice.
