About the wine

Red berry fruit jumps out of the glass here but after a couple of seconds we get hints of warm Spanish earth and soft oaky spice. Combined, this makes for a sumptuous red, fruitier than your usual Rioja, but warming and spicy. A brilliant wine to bring along to a BBQ!

About the wine

Made from a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano, which are carefully selected and picked by hand. The three varieties are vinified separately. The Tempranillo goes through a cold maceration for two days in stainless steel vats where it stays through to fermentation, then the wine is transferred to 2 year old French oak barrels to go through malolactic and age for about 8 months. For the Graciano and Garnacha, fermentation and aging occurs in concrete vats.
