Tasting Notes

An intense wine, classically designed and crafted. Fruit perfumes of ripe red berries with oak, raisin and savoury aromas. The palate has more red fruit, as well as spice and liquorice, which builds on the finish. Silky and ample on the palate.

Producer details

Grapes are sourced from this family company's 200 hectares around Haro and Briones in Rioja Alta and the quality of the range stems from the excellence of the fruit from these vineyards. The first vintage was 2003 and the aim is to produce classic styles of Rioja which combine modern fruit with real substance and quality at sensible prices.

In the vineyard

This wine is produced from selected Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano grapes sourced from 30 to 40 year old Rioja Alta vineyards whose distinctive stony soils are ideal for the long, even ripening of quality grapes. The fruit is hand harvested in mid October.

In the winery

Each variety is fermented separately in small tanks using natural yeasts at 28-30° C. After 20 days on the skins the wine is gently pressed and racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The clear wine is then racked to 2nd and 3rd year American and Russian oak barrels for 24 months maturation before blending and bottling.

Food Recommendations
