An obvious old-school Rioja with strawberry, stewed plums, coconut, red flowers, stewed tomatoes and cedar. Excellent length and ready to go.
Pale yellow. Fruity on the nose with pear and apricot notes and a light mineral edge. The palate follows with a nice roundness thanks to mild acidity and a bit of residual sugar. Overall, an easy-drinking bubbly and a good buy at this price.
The Pedro Ximenez grape is produced in a solera that was laid down in 1927. Every year, they take an amount of wine from the bottom row of barrels and top them up with wine from barrels above. This dessert wine is a deep caramel colour with an olive green rim. It’s got a nose of brown sugar and fig jam with a full-bodied flavour of sweet raisins and figs and balancing acidity.
Sourced from 50-year-old vines, this is a deeply concentrated unfiltered wine with plenty of red currant fruit, spice and rounded tannins. It is full-bodied, with weight and structure to pair with robust red meats and matured cheeses.
An outstanding Garnacha/Tempranillo/Cariñena blend showing developed fleshy red and dark fruit with a pinch of cinnamon on the nose. Black cherry, plum, sweet spices and a splash of dark chocolate in the mouth with good tannic and acidic grip offsetting the richness.
Fresh scents of apple, lemon and toasty almond. The lively palate delivers crisp apple, juicy stone fruits and lingering citrus. Finishes lemony clean and refreshing. An aperitif bubbly for salty bites: French fries, olives, anchovies, etc.
