The nose has warm spice, ripe plum and cherry aromas while the palate is richly flavoured and substantial with black fruit and a smoky, spicy character from time in oak. Well-balanced, fruity and approachable.

The winery we work with has a 60 hectare estate in Rioja Alta, and has long-term contracts with local growers to source high quality grapes (predominantly Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano) from approximately 400 hectares of prime vineyard around Haro and Briones.

Here the climate has Atlantic influences - with long, cold winters and warm summers with cool evenings. This suits gentle ripening of the grapes in order to produce elegant wines. The result is a range of contemporary and vibrant Riojas from quality fruit and at sensible prices.

The fruit is harvested in early October from vineyards in Rioja Alta, around the town of Haro. Vines on average 10-20 years old.

Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 25-30° C with twice daily pumpovers. After 12 days fermentation on the skins the wine is gently pressed and racked to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. The wine is then racked to a mixture of American and Russian oak barrels for 4-6 months maturation.

Perfect with a smoky barbequed steak with patatas bravas (spicy tapas potatoes), or a chunk of Manchego cheese. Or else hearty sausages and mash.
