Spotlight on Ochoa! 25/02/2013
Next Saturday we’ll be directing our spotlight on a top vineyard from Navarra (a Spanish region located north of La Rioja): the Bodegas Ochoa. We’ll taste two red wines made from the ubiquitous tempranillo , the backbone of Spanish & Portuguese wines and the grape with many synonyms: Tinto del Pais, Tinto Fino, Tinto de Toro, Ull de Llebre, Aragonez, Tinto Roriz are just a few examples of the many names for the same grape variety! By comparing these two red wines you’ll be able to distinguish the differences between a crianza and a reserva: the former has spent one year in oak, the latter has been aged two years, 15 months of which were spent in oak barrels.
And last but not least, we’ll also taste the famous Ochoa Late Harvest Moscatel paired with a homemade dessert that Miguel’s daughter Coline will bake for us!
David -the importer of the Ochoa wines- will be your host for this tasting.
See you! Cheers!
