In the glass it's a dense purple velvet with a glistening ruby hue. The nose is expressive and fruit-driven with ripe berry aromas, exotic spice and darker briary notes. The palate is fresh and spicy with seductive red berry and varietal cherry cola flavours wrapped in fine tannins before a long and bright finish. My advice is to invite all your nearest and dearest over to the house, get creative with some share plates and as let the wine flow!
From the Producer
Rioja Alavesa, in the foothills of the Cantabrian Mountains, is the finest sub-region of Rioja. A patchwork of small vineyards are planted in very poor, sandy soils on the lower slopes. The very low yields, along with the cooler night temperatures, creates wines with intensity matched by elegance and defined structures.
Totally de-stemmed before a long, cool fermentation with daily pump-overs to achieve optimum fruit and colour. Sulphur additions were minimal to allow for maximum fruit expression. The wine was aged primarily in stainless steel with a portion being matured in seasoned large format oak.
