Felix Jimenez

A stunning Rioja, Akemi means "Beautiful Dawn"

Producer Information

A joint project between Bodegas Ontañón and Riojan chef Felix Jimenez. The wine was made specifically to match with the Japanese and fusion cuisine that has earnt Felix a Michelin star. The name Akemi means "Beautiful Dawn" and you`ll find it on the menu at Kiro in Logroño where Felix makes his name.

Wine Making

Made from 100% Viura grapes taken from 35-year-old vines in a single vineyard plot belonging to the winery. The wine is aged in mostly 2nd use American oak before bottling.

Tasting Note

Round, creamy and fleshy but still with a lively acidity, this is no vanilla bomb. The tropical and stone fruit come first followed by the signature texture and feel.

Food Matching

Officially the perfect wine for Japanese cuisine. So versatile, this wine would pair well with any aromatic and fish dishes.
