Ochoa Rosado de Lágrima

Wines made by Javier Ochoa speak of an immense respect to the environment, to vineyard, to lots of work in the vineyard and to years of experience. Many tests, many successes, love for family (and for wine, one more in our family) and a solid respect for traditions improved by technology.

When Javier Ochoa created this wine in the 90´s it was with the aim of making the best possible rosé he could from his own grapes, using the typical Navarrese method of “sangrado”, or bleeding. His daughter, Adriana, has since taken up her father’s legacy.

Made with grapes Garnacha, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyard El Bosque from Traibuenas.

Ochoa Rosado de Lágrima is made by “sangrado” or bleeding: the traditional Navarrese method for making rosé wines.

In this process, the grapes are lightly crushed (not pressed, so they release the lágrima or tears) and this juice is allowed to remain in contact with the flesh and skins for a time (4-6 hours), before being transferred into a stainless steel vat to ferment at a controlled temperature of 18ºC. Ochoa Rosado de Lágrima is one of our best-loved wines at national level and one of our most long-standing products.

Ochoa Rosado de Lágrima is one of our most valued wines by many markets for years. We recommend its consumption all year round, because it matches very well vegetable dishes, grilled dishes and pasta or rice. It matches also fish and seafood.

Available in 75cl. and 150cl.

Ochoa Tempranillo Crianza

This Wine represents the pilars of Javier Ochoa’s philosophy, both in winery and vineyard. Very much looked after, it is the spoilt son of the house. It is the first red wine to start its conversion to organic certification in 2018.

This wine was created in 1987 by Javier Ochoa, who decided to take a chance on this privileged stand-alone varietal, which gives wine of excellent quality. At the time, it was unusual to name the variety on the label and we caused quite a stir by letting consumers know what they were enjoying.

Made with  Tempranillo 100% in parcel Santa Cruz in Traibuenas.

The finesse to make it crianza is achieved by aging it for 12 months in 225L American oak casks, after which it is rounded off in the bottle, where its characteristics continue to develop gradually and naturally.

It has very soft tannins and a delicious aroma of red berries.

Ochoa Tempranillo Crianza represents the wines of our terroir and our winery, which we continue to produce year after year because it is a quality reference among wine-drinkers.

It is a winner of various awards, mostly by the one given from the consumer.

It is a perfect wine to match any food or to enjoy with light tapas; easy to drink, it invites to a second glass. From a grilled steak to a stew or a cheese platter.

Available in 50cl., 75cl. & 150cl.

Ochoa Moscatel

The idea for a new style of natural sweet white wine from small-grained muscatel grapes was that of Javier Ochoa, when engaged in research on this varietal at the EVENA (Estación de Viticultura y Enología de Navarra- Navarra Viticulture and Oenology Station).

Our small-grained muscatel is very special, and its original characteristics are enhanced by over-ripening.

In Ochoa Moscatel we constantly reinvent ourselves and every vintage is different. Warm years bring out its intense honeyed, floral aromas, while in cooler years its notes of tropical fruits like pineapple and litchis and white flowers like elderflower. In any way the grape variety Moscatel has a special freshness that makes it very versatile and not cloying even though it is sweet.

Ideal for desserts, cheese, foie and also to make cocktails.

8A Uvadoble

When she came home, she planted a small quantity of this grape to experiment with it. 2014 is the first vintage released.

8A Uvadoble is a white wine blend of two grapes varieties that start with V: Viognier and Viura. Therefore the name: Uvadoble (“double grape”).

The Viura grapes makes the wine fresher. The wine has spent 6 months on its lees improving and getting a bigger volumen in the mouth and intensifying its fruit and flower aromas.

8A Mil Gracias

8A Mil Gracias is a different, new, elegant wine that perfectly marries the traditional with the modern.

It is one that Adriana had always wanted to make, because until now Graciano grapes have always been used in blends. So it was a challenge for her to make a 100% Graciano wine.

“I have followed every step from the vineyard to the winery to create a modern wine from a variety that has been grown on our lands for many years”. Made with Graciano grapes from the vineyard La Pedrera in Traibuenas.
This wine is aged for 9 months in used barrels to smooth its potential aromas and flavours, keeping its original character.

8A Origen

8A Origen is Adriana’s response to the goal of producing a wine from three different varieties of grape grown on three estates with a common feature: the soil, which is a wonderful scree. The name ORIGEN, (origin in English) comes from the fact that this wine originates from grapes selected according to the type of soil in which they grow.

Made with Tempranillo (70%) , Merlot (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) grapes from vineyards El Secadero (Tempranillo), La Milla (Merlot) and El Bosque de Traibuenas (Cabernet Sauvignon).

The grapes are selected according to the most stony soil of the vineyard, which makes the grapes ripe in a special way. Therefore this wine is a selection of grapes from 3 different plots, where the soil is the common denominator.

It ages in new american and french oak barrels for 15 months. And then ages in bottle until it is ready to drink. 8A Origen is mainly characterized from its freshness, minerality and great fruit character.

The slogan for this series is “The moon is always there, even if we can’t see it”. It is meant to reflect our respect for the course of Nature, which is an essential part of making quality wines.
