Olivier Rivière ‘Gabaxo’ Rioja 2018

26.00

Organic Wine

Frenchman Olivier Rivière is another good example of the new wave of young, small producers who have emerged in Spain over the last decade.

His Gabaxo is a 50/50 blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha. Grapes are sourced from different vineyards and it sees a welcome return for Olivier who had a disastrous 2017 harvest, losing a high percentage of his grapes and thus was not able to produce many wines. Grapes are hand harvested, fermentation is whole cluster with natural yeast in concrete vats and aging is 12 months in foudre and 500L French oak demi-muids.

Along with Jequitiba, Olivier considers Gabaxo to be his Côte de Nuits version of Rioja.

This is a very fine and elegant wine, terribly tasty and fresh, perhaps mineral with good acidity.
