This Spanish Rioja red wine would be a match made in heaven with beef, lamb, veal, and poultry dishes.
This is a beautiful Rioja blend of Tempranillo, Grenache, Graciano, Viura (Macabeo) and Maturana Tinta. It spends 12 months in French oak, bringing forth notes on the palate of blackcurrant, raspberry, and
tobacco; leading to aromas of leather, hazelnut, and black cherry to fulfill your senses. Showing a complex, yet approachable wine with medium tannins, and a long, satisfying finish.
The grapes are hand harvested between September 25th- 30th. Tempranillo and Viura were vatted at the same time in stainless steel tanks. As of this vintage, we also began to use indigenous yeasts in half of the deposits. MLF in steel and concrete tanks. The wine goes into barrels in March. Where it is aged 12 months.
