- Taste Guide: (Decant for approximately 1 hour) In the glass, this wine presents itself to a wonderfully strong garnet red. The bouquet seduces with a powerful and complex play of aromas with notes of ripe, red and dark berries, floral elements, caramel tones, chocolate and vanilla from well-integrated wood. On the palate, this wine is fresh and lively, the tannins are soft and the long, elegant finish shows ripe berry aromas again. Oaked for 24 months in French Oak Barrels.
- Food pairing: Streak or roast beef ideal but most roast dinners like Lamb and Chicken would be fine.
- 75cl - 14% tbc - Traditional Cork Opening
“Our wines are born in the vineyard. That’s where they truly acquire their personality. That of the terroir, the landscape and what happens in it for an entire year. That is why when we began building the winery, we had a clear idea of what we wanted. The process was to be respectful with the grape with the aim of enhancing its qualities. And that is what we did. All our grapes are picked by hand and placed in small tubs or crates to prevent the berries from breaking and ensure remain whole. If I had to choose one word to define La Rioja, it would be ‘diversity’. The terrain, the type of wind, the colour of the soil… Each metre, each hop from one village to the next, is a change in the landscape. If we drew a straight line on a map we would note that there are only 100 kilometres from the westernmost to the easternmost part of La Rioja. To the north, the Sierra de Cantabria. To the south, the Sierra de la Demanda. And crossing it from west to east, the River Ebro. That is La Rioja A great valley between two mountain ranges to protect it. The western part is called Rioja Alta, then there is Central Rioja, and then the eastern part, known as Rioja Baja. The recognised quality of Rioja wines have made us a leading global brand. A combination of the most classic wines and the most modern creations has made the wine region known and admired by consumers across the world. The innovative endeavours of our winemakers produces a wide variety of wines with a unique personality, setting us apart from other quality wine regions”.
This single-vineyard, powerful wine with complex aromas of ripe red and black fruits accented by florals is backed by well-integrated hints of toffee and cocoa. Fresh and expressive on the palate with great acidity and soft tannins, this blend of 4 native varietals is packed with smooth caramel and mature fruit through to the long finish.
