Winery information

Finca Allende

Finca Allende is the brainchild of Miguel Ángel de Gregorio, one of Rioja's 'modernistas'. The winery is based in Briones, on the right bank of the Ebro river, in Rioja Alta. The soils in Briones are composed of red clay and gravel and the vineyards face north. Miguel's philosophy is that wine is made in the vineyard and he seeks to express the individual qualities of each site, rather than highlight barrel ageing. Indeed, when you visit him in Rioja, he often insists on tasting individual vineyard wines in situ, to fully understand their origin and style. The single vineyard wines Martires, Calvario and Aurus are the ultimate expressions of Miguel's hard work.

Finca Allende practices sustainable viticulture without the use of harmful pesticides or herbicides. Cultivation is done by hand or with the help of horses. Allende's commitment is also ethical and the winery supports various projects aimed at helping more disadvantaged groups. The flagship Allende Tinto is 100% Tempranillo, aged for 14 months in French oak barrels.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2015) - 92 pts

One of two new vineyard-designated reds produced for the first time in 2015, the 2015 Gaminde was sourced from a plot planted in Briones back in 1942 at 495 meters of altitude on clay and gravel soils. The bunches were selected, then the grapes were sorted by a new optical machine and put to ferment uncrushed in a French oak vat after a cold soak. Malolactic was in barrel followed by 16 months in new French barriques. This comes from red soils with clay, soils that tend to deliver more fruit-forward wines, a little baroque, juicy and tasty. It's quite fruit-driven, with glossy tannins, balsamic with more volume. A showy, ripe, modern Rioja with some lactic hints. 9,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2017.

Vinification notes

Whole bunches destalked and not crushed in french oak watts. Cold prefermentary maceration at 5º C during 6 days. Fermentation controlled at 28º C during 14 days, with three pumping over a day. Total maceration with skins of 20 days. Devatting by gravity and vertical press. Malolactic is done in barrels .
