Bodegas Ondarre, is based in Viana, a historic town six kilometres from Logroño, Rioja's capital. Founded in 1986 it has quickly become one of the standout producers in the region with its elegant and distinguishable style. Their most acclaimed wines are their Reservas, which win top awards and critical approval every year. They attribute their success to the hard work in the vineyards and their continual investment into the winery and barrel stock. They use both French and American oak casks to help them obtain the incredible character in their wines. As well as their Reservas they produce a few thousand cases of a single varietal Graciano. A real rarity due to the low yielding nature of the vine.

Cava is made from the Viura grape variety and this cuvée has DO Cava status. Cava DO is the official classification of Cava and it can be produced throughout Spain. However strict quality requirements have to be met to achieve this status; with limitations to the maximum yields, the alcoholic strength, the atmospheric pressure and the wine must spend a minimum of nine months on the lees. The vines which produced this Cava were grown in clay based soils with a high iron and chalk content.

The grapes were vinified in the traditional manner in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures of 14 to 16°C. Secondary fermentation took place in the bottle with yeasts carefully selected for their aromatic finesse. Disgorging took place after 14 months.

Full, creamy and rounded flavours with biscuity tones through to a refreshingly clean, crisp finish. We suggest to serve it chilled as an aperitif or with fish dishes
