The wine

Terroir, serenity, elegance, singularity, timelessness... these are the concepts which Torre de Oña, part of the La Rioja Alta group, intends to identify with, concepts which it wants to convey in its wines, now numbering three after the incorporation of its new creation: Martelo.

At Torre de Oña, work has been ongoing since 1995 by La Rioja Alta to produce wines that would reflect the heterogeneous nature of this estate located in the Rioja Alavesa, with the personality and rusticity typical of the Alavés terroir, but without losing a single iota of the balance, refinement and complexity we've become used to appreciating in its wines from the Rioja Alta, ones which have shown the true mastery of this winery.

Resulting from expertise and knowledge, as well as relentless rigour and an exceptional land of high quality, we've been presented with Martelo, a Reserva wine which is a breath of fresh air, the essence of the Rioja Alavesa terroir, made primarily from Tempranillo (95%) grapes grown on vines aged over 60 years old, accompanied by some Mazuelo, Garnacha and a small amount of Viura.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

I found a very complete 2015 Finca Martelo that followed the style and the quality path of the previous vintages. The release of this wine was an important milestone for Torre de Oña, where they look for the typicity of Rioja Alavesa through a blend of old-vine Tempranillo with 6% other varieties (Mazuelo, Garnacha and even white Viura). 2015 was a healthy harvest, and the wine shows a nice combination of power and elegance. It's clean and modern but with a traditional twist, some developed aromas and very fine chalky tannins from the limestone-rich soils. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2019.
