Wine Makers

Rondan Crianza. by Manuel Tato

Rondan is the name of the particular vineyard from which the grapes for these wines are cultivated. This winery has developed a reputation for making exceptional wines at about half the price of other independent producers in the area. The grapes are harvested by hand, and temperatures are kept low during fermentation, again ensuring the freshness of the fruit is maintained.

 

Both the crianza and the reserva have the potential to age for quite a few years. The reserva is made from the very best grapes in the estate, some from vines which are 80 years old. These vines produce small quantities, but it is the quality of the grapes which makes this wine outstanding.

Press Reviews

"Nice old-fashioned style. Subtle hints of coconut and vanilla from the American oak floating on top of ripe-but-not-stewed plum and cherry fruit, tapering to a long finish." Ernie Whalley, Sunday Times

"A classic old-fashioned style with plenty of soft berry and plum fruit, overlaid by coconut and vanilla." Martin Moran, Sunday Times

"Bought this after a tasting given to us by Wines Direct from Mullingar, Westmeath. Gavin took us through several wines on the night but this was the pick of them all for me. A nice spicy Crianza, which is made with 90% Tempranillo grape. Notes of spice, pepper and ripe blackberry. On the palate you will find nice grippy tannins. The level of tannins is just right in my opinion. Creamy, velvety blackcurrant flavours. A relatively dry wine with a long savoury finish. The price seems very fair for this decent Crianza. Three bottles of this left to enjoy over the next year or two..."
