Finca Martelo Rioja Reserva 2015

Finca Martelo Rioja Reserva is a site-specific wine, first produced in 2012 as an innovative ‘château concept’ from high-altitude plots surrounding the Torre de Oña winery, before the new rules for Viñedos Singulares. Head winemaker Julio Saenz refers to it as “our little Burgundy” because of how closely it represents this unique location. The wine is a field blend, 95% Tempranillo with 5% other varieties including Mazuelo, Garnacha, and even Viura. The chalk soils and 80-year-old vines at Torre de Oña produce a fuller, riper style of Rioja, while the high altitude and Atlantic influence in Rioja Alavesa keeps the wine fresh and elegant. This style is complemented by the use of 20% French oak alongside 80% American oak and shorter maturation in addition to La Rioja Alta’s ultra-traditional methods such as optical berry sorting and racking by hand. Matured for 24 months in oak Finca Mertelo has intense aromas, with notes of ripe fruit, wild strawberries, red currants and red cherries wrapped in fine notes of patisserie, shortbread, vanilla, liquorice and peppercorns. Well-balanced in the mouth, with a pleasant freshness, and sweet, silky tannins that lead to an enveloping finish. This is a vintage to enjoy now, but with a long, exciting life ahead.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
