Tasting Notes

Aromas of bramble fruit with spice and lightly floral notes. On the palate, plum and ripe blackberry fruit flavours combine with ample acidity, minerality and earthy notes. Tannins are smooth and supple as you would expect from a wine this age and it's drinking beautifully.

Producer details

Raquel, Ruben and Maria Pérez Cuevas are part of the 3rd generation of the Cuevas family to make wine in Rioja Baja. Their father, Gabriel, inherited parcels of vineyards just outside the town of Quel on the higher slopes of the Sierra de Yerga mountain range. He was determined to produce wine that embodied the region, where he believed some of the highest quality wines from Rioja are made, and soon acquired more vineyard in the area.

In the vineyard

Reservas are only produced in years of exceptional quality - and from the most select vineyards. The Tempranillo is sourced from La Pasada, and the Graciano from La Montesa vineyard.

In the winery

After a long maceration the wine spends 12 months in 60% American and 40% French oak (both used and new), followed by 24 months in bottle.

Food Recommendations

Drink this Reserva with lamb, roast pork, mushroom risotto.
