Segares, Rioja Crianza, 2015

Excellent pure Tempranillo Rioja, all cooked strawberries and spice, attractively mellow and drinking very well. Now-2023

At last we have found a small - 25 hectares - family-owned Rioja estate which we can call our own: we have spent years looking! Founder José Nestares Eguizábal bought the land in 1983, and embarked for the next six years on replanting the whole estate to Tempranillo. Now the estate is run by two of his children, and the Bodega uses as its brand name Segares, the family name of their grandmother.

Situated in Rioja Media, the vineyards, in four plots, lie on a plateau at 520-650 metres between the Ocen and Jubera valleys. The wines have a distinctive house style: all are from only Tempranillo, and all exhibit a lovely purity of red fruit, with a lush texture aided by being bottled with minimal filtration. The cellar holds a mix of about 2/3 American and 1/3 French oak barrels.
