Olivier Rivière ‘Rayos Uva’


“… no oak, juicy and fresh, lovely core of sweet fruit, notes of earth and leather, superb. Outstanding un-oaked Rioja, freshness abounds in a swirl of mouth coating pure Tempranillo fruit. A beautiful example of how to capture the pure fruit potential of this noble Spanish variety that is so often covered with american oak and sweet vanilla nonsense. Olivier is a master of expressing ‘terroir’ and varietal character rather than wine making. Like many other biodynamic pioneers, he allows the wine to make itself and the results reveal the potential of Tempranillo and the hot Rioja region to still produce wines of exceptional freshness and vitality. Laden with young red and black cherry and plum, a slight note of fig, slightly earthy beneath, but fresh, fresh, fresh, lovely wine.” Buon Vino
