"An homage to Juan Luis Canas’ mother, this sister label began life in 1995 with “Concrete, Stone and wood” as the essence of the wines.  With an extra years bottle age and the added use of white Tempranillo in the blend this wine showed added structure and backbone.  Also the use of concrete eggs in the vinification lends an added dimension of texture to the wine.  Again you can experience the balance and concentration which comes from the old vines which are on average over 60 yrs old. Truly special!" - Mark, The Vineking West Road Manager

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.

Tremendously fresh thanks to the acidity that the combination of the diffrent white varieties provide. This continues on the palate with stone fruit with citrus notes and tropical flavours accompanied with an enjoyable enveloping unctuous mouthfeel that shows the labour- intensive stirring of the lees. Very long finish with saline hints.
