Fincas de Azabache is a state of the art cooperative, founded in December 1956. The Bodegas now owns 2600 hectares of vineyards at the foot of Mount Yerga, in the dry region of the Rioja Oriental. With limited risk of rot, it is an area conducive to the principles of organic viticulture, to which the Bodegas is firmly and successfully committed. The cooperative have recently invested heavily in a new winery, the fruits of which we are now seeing.
Made in the traditional method with 18 months minimum aging followed by 30 days of remuage then disgorgement and topped up with the same sparkling wine and liquer d’expedition, based on white barrel fermented DOCa Rioja aged in new oak casks.
It’s colour is intense and bright straw with golden hues, the aroma is deeply fruity with underlying notes of white fruit and citrus. Elegant and silky highlights an outstanding harmony between acidity and smoothness, with a lengthy finish. Perfect with sushi!

Region The region of La Rioja lends its name to Spain`s most widely recognised wines. Much Rioja is blended from three districts; Alta and Alavesa to the north and the hot dry Oriental district to the south (previously known as Rioja Baja) and uses Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Mazuelo red grape varieties and the diminishing influence of extended ageing in oak barrels.
