In 1995, the iconic La Rioja Alta estate purchased Torre de Oña. The purpose was to make a different wine to the great traditional classics they make at their original, fine bodega. They wanted to experiment, to make a different expression of Rioja, that embraced both tradition and modernity. Starting in 2005, they studied the terroir of each plot and vinified them separately. Martelo Reserva is a single vineyard red – old-vine Tempranillo with a little Mazuelo, Garnacha and Viura – what they call a field blend. It’s aged for two years in mostly American oak (20% French), all new. Critic Jamie Goode calls this “a modern Rioja”, yet it’s not about bold fruit. There’s elegance, complexity, richness and length. Decant early or cellar.

"Dark cherries, vanilla, resin, bark and tea leaves. Full body, muscular but really compact tannins" James Suckling
