Bright ruby red in colour with intense aromas of red fruit. On the palate lively red and black fruit flavours abound with gentle hints of oak, spice and toast. Well rounded and wonderfully balanced with a remarkable freshness on the long finish.
The wine is made up of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha. Ruby coloured and perfumed with dark fruit, cinnamon, Christmas spice, figs and fresh espresso. Complex, dark berry compote and liquorice dominate, followed by a lighter taste of freshly ground coffee, allspice and black cherry on the lengthy finish. This wine will peak for the next 10-15 years, but can be enjoyed beyond 2030.
Medium yellow gold in the glass, this wine has a tremendously aromatic nose of paraffin, wet stones, and pine sap. In the mouth it is crystalline in its acidity but with phenomenal balance, tipping between a crackling minerality and a herbal, candied lemon peel sprinkled on old parchment and fresh hazelnuts. The finish lingers long and electric with a resonance of grapefruit and rainwater. Gorgeous and utterly distinctive.
Very old fashioned and hugely impressive. Intense and complex Rioja.
Attractive aromas of cherries and cinnamon are carried through from the nose to the palate. A backbone of refreshing acidity and firm tannin combine with the fruit to produce a wine of sublime balance.
This younger Rioja has the typical nuances of Tempranillo (95%), assisted by Mazuelo (5%), which benefits the wine’s acidity and its wild, fruity, red berry aromas. Unoaked Joven Riojas - of which this is one (hence the "sin") - are increasingly common and provide a different, fruitier, punchier side of Tempranillo. It is consequently very fresh on the palate, with just a gentle astringency and a medium-long, lively and satisfying aftertaste. This is an excellent - and great value - example of the new wave of younger Riojas.
Intense garnet red in colour, this wine has complex perfumes of wild dark fruits with hints of balsamic, light toast and toffee on the nose. It is well structured, fleshy on the palate, with concentrated ripe fruit flavours and a long, smoky finish.
Intense bright garnet red colour with violet glints. A complex bouquet of ripe and juicy berries. This fruit-driven contemporary style is perfectly complemented by the oakey vanilla overtones. Palate: Smooth, persistent, slightly tannic, long and balanced.
Ruby Red colour with medium intensity. This wine has very ripe fruits of sultanas and compote on the nose, accompanied by cinnamon, vanilla and toast. A sweet attack on the pallet of ripe fruit and liquorice with a long, luscious finish.
This wine is cherry red with brick red tones. There are intense, spicy, ripe cherry and plum aromas merged with notes of tobacco, toffee, vanilla and wood. On the palate, the body is full and fleshy with excellent balance.
