• Kalamity saw the light in the 2014 vintage with the idea of uniting the best grapes from the Elvillar, Rioja Alavesa and Cárdenas de Rioja Alta vineyards. It combines grapes from the 1919 vineyards of Elvillar (Rioja Alavesa) and 1903 of Cárdenas (Rioja Alta). Kalamity shows complexity and variety of aromas. Black and red fruit, floral notes with violets in the background and light sweet spices. A wine of good acidity, mineral and of enormous length, which owes its name and label to Oxer Basteguieta’s passion for Shakespeare.

• Iraun owes its name to the Basque roots of the winemaker Oxer Basteguieta and means “to last”. From the 1919 vineyards located in Elvillar, La Rioja Alavesa, on the nose it will bring us aromas of white fruit, citrus notes, sweet spices and a floral background. On the palate it shows an acidity and a magnificent minerality that gives it an incredibly long length.

• We will continue with Artillero, whose name honors the former owner of the vineyard, a gunner in the civil war and whom Oxer wanted to remember as thanks for the utmost care for the vineyard. Also from the 1919 vineyards at Elvillar, this intense and lively wine reminds the nose of black and red fruit, with floral notes and sweet spices along with well-integrated wood, which adds complexity, together with a pleasantly fresh and acidity. a fine-grained tannin structure. In the mouth it reminds of black fruit, sweet spices, violets and a touch of leather.
