Bodegas Ostatu is a family winery located in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa region in the town of Samaniego.

The Saenz de Samaniego family has been in the area for many generations. The winery dates back over two hundred and fifty years. The vineyards, which are protected by the Sierra de Cantabria range, are composed of chalk and clay and the average age of the vines is 50 years. The estate is comprised of over forty hectares of vines located in and around the town of Samaniego. The poor
soils and the unique location at the foot of this mountain range together create a special microclimate that is very favorable to the Tempranillo grape.

Sourced from some of Ostatu's oldest and highest elevation vineyards, this light and refreshing wine is a modern variation of a classic rosé from Rioja.

Vinification Fermented in stainless steel and bottled without any further aging.

Tasting Notes Floral and acidic, very light on the palete with notes of red berries.
