2014 Bodega Akutain Rioja Reserva

Juan Peñagaricano Akutain was an engineer from Basque Country, working for a company that sold cooling units to wineries. Through his work, he developed personal relationships with many Rioja producers and spent an extended amount of time tasting and learning in the region which gave him the confidence to start his own project in 1975.  Bodega Akutain is a small property of 6.5 hectares, which is now looked after by his son, Jon Peñagaricano.

 

Why do we like it?

We love traditional Rioja! At Akutain, harvest is still done by hand, all fermentations are with natural yeasts in fiberglass vats with no temperature control and aging is done mostly in American oak. It is such a classic Rioja with a balance of fruit and earthy-oaky savouriness and a subtle dry elegant finish.
