Quick Facts

Rayos Uva is a post modernist Rioja made by the largely talented Olivier Riviere. This clever blend is juicy and upfront with abundant red fruit flavors and great acidity.

The Wine’s Story

Rayos Uva is Olivier’s brilliant entry-level wine. It’s done in stainless steel tanks only, and is a very clever blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo, sourced from vineyards in Rioja’s sub zones Alta and Baja. The Tempranillo from cooler vineyards in Rioja Alta brings acidity and grip, while the warmer climate in Baja adds lush and sexy fruit flavors.
