Organic, no oak, fresh, elegant rich, yet fruity and very approachable. Moraza are in the Rioja Alta, North of the Ebro River with vineyards on a South Exposition. Vineyards are between 450m and 650m with Clay and limestone soils. D
rinking beautifully now, but could be saved for a few years. Personally I think it is a great party wine as it is a bit of a crowd-pleaser. Garnacha (Grenache) from this altitude is usually nice and spicy with plenty of freshness.
Janire is the 6th generation winemaker at the family Moraza. She urged her father and uncle to convert their 18 hectares to organic farming. All the wines are naturally fermented, unfiltered and single grape to ensure a true expression of the variety. They use only cement fermenters for vinification and ageing. One could say these are ‘modern’ Riojas, astonishingly fresh and unoaked.
