Bodega Calle "El Olvidado" Reserve Tempranillo

Bodega Calle “El Olvidado” Reserve Tempranillo


  • Roughly half of Mendoza’s population is of Spanish descent, and over the years a number of Tempranillo vines have been planted in the region. This bottling, from an heirloom quality parral style vineyard in Altamira, Spain, is packed with lush cherry and raspberry fruit.
  • A long growing season, very cold nights and low yields helped create a wine that is extremely concentrated, parral vineyard. 70 year old vines

Varietal Composition: 100% Tempranillo

Elaboration: Fermented in concrete tanks and then aged 12 months with a combination of new and used American oak.

Tasting Notes: “Medium color. Aromas and flavors of red fruit and herbs with a bright, dry light-to-medium body and a brisk finish with fruit tannins and a suggestions of oak. A simple red to serve with everyday fare.”




At the crossroads of four corners and four historic wineries, Luigi Bosca, Baldini, and Lagarde, Bodega Calle is located on their southwest corner. A small-lot, gravity-flow, red wine making studio located in the prized viticultural area of Luján de Cuyo, our winery was opened in 2001 in the restored Claudio Erice winery, originally built in 1925. The winery concentrates on varietal wines and premium red blends sourced from viticultural areas throughout Luján and Valle de Uco. All wines are made with the use of gravity and are never pumped to deliver the grapes to the fermentation tanks.

All grapes are farmed without the use of herbicides or pesticides, are hand picked and sorted and vinified using native yeasts, which results in a more gradual fermentation curve and less intervention with refrigeration. Bodega Calle is a certified organic winery and the wines are GMO free and vegan. Also, the winery recently joined the DOC of Luján de Cuyo, the 5th winery ever to be admitted. Kirk Ermisch is its principal owner and general manager. Christopher Ermisch is the original founder of Bodega Calle, along with Elvira Calle, a famous local businesswoman and philanthropist.
