Beloki is our vision of what a modern Rioja can be and has to be. To discover new ways in a traditional land and reach new consumers that enjoy both the old and the new together in a glass of wine.

Winemaking

The grapes were handpick from carefully selected small parcels at optimum stage of ripeness. Gentle de-stemming and crushing. Cold soaked at 5ºC during 48 hours. Temperature controlled fermentation and maceration beginning at 20-22ºC and finishing at 27-28ºC towards the end of the fermentation in stainless steel tanks during 12-15 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine was racked into 1-3 year old French and American oak barrels of 225 liters where it was aged for 36 months.

Tasting notes

Picota cherry red color with garnet reflections. Smokey notes of oak hit your nose and slowly release interesting notes of balsamic and alluring spices. It has soft textures in the mouth but at the same time you get elegant tannins, the result is a seductive silkiness to the wine. The wine can handle complex dishes with intense flavors such as traditional beef stew.
