New Rioja Wines Added to Fine Terroir Selections

Mendieta Osaba’s Mendi and Osaba wines from the Rioja Alavesa region of Spain.

Fine Terroir Selections added new Spanish wines from Mendieta Osaba. A production, family-owned winery located in Lanciego, Rioja Alavesa – which skirts the Sierra Cantabria Mountain range – the team at Mendieta Osaba has been growing grapes on its family’s historic vineyards for generations, producing high-quality, terroir-driven wines that are a true reflection of the soil. The wines range from Tempranillo blends and a single-estate vineyard monovarietal gem to a single-estate Malvasia/Viura. Two new wines from the producer are now available in Connecticut. Mendi is a 13.5% ABV 100% Tempranillo vegan certified wine from Spain’s Rioja Alavesa. With a brilliant cherry red color and violet tones, the wine is packed with perfume on the nose, for a very fresh, youthful rioja with intense aromas of blackberries and dashes of spices. Osaba Mendi – also a 100% Tempranillo vegan certified wine and 13.5% ABV from Spain’s Rioja Alavesa – offers a deep cherry color with violet tones, ripe flavors of blackberries followed by spicy organic oak and vanilla with cocoa nuances, and is balanced with a long and juicy finish.
