Ochoa 8A series, singular wines where innovation meets tradition.

Wine Description

At Bodegas, we are on a constant attempt to improve the quality of our vineyards and wines. Sustainability and R+D+I are key assets of our practices, a constant endeavour that we undertake as a part of our DNA.

The Ochoa 8A series brings together 175 years of history of winemaking and the entrepreneurial spirit of Adriana Ochoa, sixth generation of the Ochoa family and current winemaker, whose expertise and visioning lead to wines that born after interacting with the vineyards.

This wine is a deserved tribute to Ochoa´s 4th generation, Mr.Adriano Ochoa, who run our house during the Spanish civil war period in the XX century. A wine crafted to celebrate life and friendship, looking no further than "right here-right now".

The four grapes are handled and fermented separately, ultimately blended. The wine ages 9 months in 225 L second/third years used American and French oak barrels, having as well 24 months at least of bottle ageing before being available in the market. A wine to be considered as a Crianza.


Tasting Notes

To the eye: medium ruby colour.

On the nose: predominant black and red currant, black cherries, vanilla and white pepper.

On the mouth fit shows great concentration of flavours, firm tannins, excellent balance of alcohol and body, medium plus flavour intensity and medium plus yummy finish.
