Jon Canas (Luis Canas’ grandson) is the imaginative winemaker behind Bodegas Amaren. Jon has been granted free rein to explore the character of Alavesa’s vineyards, giving us a raw, modern interpretation of Rioja Alavesa. Bodegas Amaren is comprised of some of best and highest altitude vineyards around the villages of Samaniego and Leza, where the soil is poor and gnarly vines, ageing up to and over 100 years old, produces small bunches, perfect for making highly concentrated Rioja wines.

"A blend of Tempranillo and the treasured Graciano that is clothed in French oak over a period of 16 months before bottling. The result is silky, concentrated red and black fruited wine with a touch of spice. Further to this there are garrigue notes as the French would say including rosemary and thyme. The smooth tannins carry the fruit on the palate for a lingering pleasurable finish. An absolute classic that sits head and shoulders above most Riojas." - Mark, The Vineking West Road Manager
