Orben Rioja's vineyards benefit from the mitigating influence of the Atlantic Ocean giving the resulting wines fresh acidity, which is important in a very warm climate. This area has the highest percentage of old vines in Rioja. The grapes for this wine come from a selection of 79 plots of an average size of 0.30 hectares, located in Laguardia. The vineyards were planted between 1945 and 1954 and have an average yield of four tonnes per hectare. The bush vine vineyards are planted on limestone and clay soil at an altitude of around 550m above sea level.
Orben Rioja is intense garnet red in colour. Very interesting on the nose, with wild fruit, balsamic aromas, toasty oak and toffee. Full-bodied, the wine is balanced and open. It has complexity and a persistent and aromatic aftertaste.
