Grape Varieties : 70% tempranillo, 20% garnacha and 10% mazuelo
The past, present and future of the Rioja Oriental. Past, represented by the traditional garnacha and mazuelo varieties, present, for the now predominant tempranillo and future, a future built around the combination of all of these grapes, following that typical Rioja tradition of blending varieties to make great wines.
Monte Gatún is intense, with a nose of forest fruits, ripe figs, thyme and lavender. On the palate it is smooth and textured, with silky tannins that make it easy to drink and with a ripe Garnacha finish.
Rioja doesn’t get any better than this. Javier Arizcuren’s sharp eye for detail from his architect training unites with his family’s grape growing history in Quel and his desire to not only ensure the vineyards continue but thrive has led to Arizcuren. An outstanding collection of perfectly made wines that really do show just how good Rioja can be. Javier has an intense understanding of this heritage, the soils, the climate, the vines and how to transform them with the most utmost respect.
