Luberri Orlegi 2021

Luberri Orlegi is the reference point for traditional, lighter-bodied, fruit-forward wines of Rioja Alavesa. Orlegi is produced from two estate vineyards: tempranillo from El Cuento at 415m and viura from Cuatroencias at 500m. Orlegi combines whole-cluster fermentation and standard fermentation with native yeasts in stainless steel to emphasize the fruit. The resulting wine is classic, fresh, and food-friendly. A delicious tempranillo from Rioja for everyday drinking!

Vinification – Grape clusters are put into stainless steel tanks whole, without destemming or crushing. It undergoes a partial carbonic maceration; the beginning of fermentation is intracellular, temperature-controlled at 24°C. This is followed by maceration on the skins for eight to ten days while native yeasts present on the grapes complete alcoholic fermentation. Orlegi rests in tank until bottling in January.
