Description

"It is attractively fruited and savoury at the same time, showing dark fruit characters with leather, mixed spice and olive notes on the nose. The palate delivers juicy fruit flavours together with smooth mouthfeel and chalky tannins, finishing dry and lingering. A lovely food wine" Sam Kim, Aug 2019

This wine displays a bright red cherry in the glass, accompanied by aromas of vanilla, cocoa & coffee, combined with red fruit notes and liquorice. The palate is broad and elegant with soft tannins. The aftertaste is very pleasant, tasty and clean. 

The production is located in Elciego (Rioja Alavesa). The soil is chalky-clay. Gobelet and trellis-trained vine growing systems.

Fermented for 15 days in stainless steel tanks with daily pumping-over. 12 months in oak barrels plus 12 more months in the bottle.

Food Pairing: Tapas, cured ham (‘jamón’) and Iberian cold meats. Pasta recipes and meat rices. Demi-cured cheeses. Roasted lamb. Burgers and barbecued meats.
