Gil Family Estates Amona Rioja 2020
$29.90 inc. GST
Tasting Note: The Bodega’s latest release, Amona (Grandmother), displays a fresh fruit forward style with a medium body. The label is sentimental to the family showing a protection amulet symbolising their grandmother, nine branches representing her nine children, and leaves that represent each of the grandchildren. From the heart of Rioja Alavesa comes the most endearing project of the Gil family. Rosario Vera is not just any winery, but the way to remember the mother and co-founder of the family label. Founded in 2017, Rosario Vera is the newest winery from Gil Family Estates. It is located in the town of Laguardia in the D.O.Ca. of Rioja, Spain. The Rioja Alavesa area was chosen because of its proximity to the Sierra de Cantabria. The mountainous alignment isolates La Rioja from maritime influence. The precipitations, that take place are mainly in spring and autumn. Rosario Vera’s vineyards consist of small plots, planted 15 to 60 years ago. Calcareous clay soils, the climate, as well as high altitude, make a perfect place to grow vines and obtain high quality grapes.
