The isolated mountainous region produces famously powerful wines from the Garnacha (Grenache) grape. Deep plum red. Robust nose, smells like a rum n’ raisin chocolate bar resting on a wet oak plank. Medium bodied with heady alcohol (15%). Tastes of dark berries and black licorice candy. Drink to 2021.
Deep amber in colour. Caramel and toasted nut nose. Medium body, dry, nutty, toasty, rich and full on the palate. Lingering with an orange peel note on the finish.
Palomino is a white grape that typically finds its way in Sherry, but this bodega crafts a characterful white from it. Full body with appealing salty and roasted almond notes and a charming oxidative profile. The slight bitterness compensates for the moderate acidity. A wine made to shine with food: Manchego and roasted almond for the aperitif and mushroom risotto for the main course.
Aromas of dried fruits, citrus and smoky hints lead to a seductive and mouth-filling viscose palate, layers of raisin, nutty notes and zesty notes, layered in perfect harmony, and supported by balanced acidity. When served slightly chilled, it is an ideal companion for Manchego or blue cheeses.
Rich, powerful and concentrated with loads of dark fruit, earth, spice, licorice and mineral, slightly smoky, firmly tannic and bold with a long, big finish.
Organically farmed blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Mazuelo from high altitude vines (c. 600 metres), these vines grow at some of the highest points in Rioja. Up front ripe cherry and raspberry before a fresh and luscious well-balanced palate with balanced acidity and enduring spice and vanilla notes.
This blend of Verdejo (90%) and Viura (10%) is sourced from gravelly soils, fermented and aged in stainless steel. From a very warm year, the earliest harvest on record. Floral and citrus notes up front lead to a fresh, citrus and mineral toned dry palate with good mouthfeel wrapped in juicy acidity before a lengthy clean close.
