Kalamity is a red wine elaborated with the varieties Garnacha Tinta, Viura, Tempranillo in D.O. La Rioja by Oxer Bastegieta in Laguardia, Alava.
Oxer Bastegieta is a vigneron that began to elaborate Txakoli in the familiar winery in Kortezubi, a small Vizcaína locality that is near the natural park of Urdaibai. He moved to Rioja to study a master in viticulture and oenology and was in love with the landscapes of Rioja Alavesa. It established its residence in Laguardia in 2009 and began to inspect the vineyard of the zone to begin to elaborate wines by the zone.
A provocative wine on the palate, with a perfect balance between fruit, acidity and tannins with a very good length and long bottle life.
Kalamity is the culmination of Oxer’s project in the area, very old vineyard of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Viura cultivated following the precepts of biodynamic agriculture. Fermented and bred in French oak barrels this red wine is pure craftsmanship.
Oxer Bastegieta is a family estate, based in the Basque country in the northwest of Spain and producing both Txakoli and Rioja from their own vineyards.
