Abadia Retuerta Selección Especial 2013 (1x 75cl)

Produced from a selection of the best grapes from Abadia Retuerta's vineyards, this deep coloured, complex red combines the richness of Tempranillo, the elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon and the strength of Syrah. The nose is fresh and vibrant, full of ripe black and red fruits combined with lingering notes of balsamic, liquorice and sweet oak wood. The full bodied, creamy palate is structured by smooth tannins, juicy ripe fruits and a hint of cedar. 2011 was one of Abadía Retuerta's best ever vintages, delivering a style of wine that can be drunk with pleasure right now or left to develop further complexities over the next few years.

Altos de Corral, Rioja, Bodegas Corral 2009 (1x 75cl)

Awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their March 2017 edition review of Premium Rioja (see blue link below).

Altos de Corral, Rioja, Bodegas Corral 2009 - March 2017 Decanter review

Made from 100% Tempranillo from a superb 10-hectare vineyard on a prominent hillside, at an altitude of 600 metres, overlooking Navarrete in the Rioja Alta. The soil in this vineyard is extremely poor and rocky and yields are 30% below the average for Rioja, resulting in wines of great concentration and richness.

Harvest and selection is carried out by hand. Aged for 24 months in French oak casks.

Intense red cherry in colour. Complex, dominant flavour of red berries, well-assembled with soft notes of vanilla and new fine oak barrel. Soft tannins, full-bodied and a lingering finish.

Beronia Rioja Reserva 2012 (1x 75cl)

The 2011 vintage was classified as excellent by the Rioja Regulatory Council.

The wine is produced following a selection of the best grapes from the oldest vineyards. The grapes undergo prefermentative maceration followed by a slow and controlled fermentation with periodic pumping over to extract colour and aromas.  Following this the wine is aged in mixed oak barrels of American Staves and French tops for 20 months to allow a paused and harmonic evolution.  The American oak gives a sweet character of vanilla and coconut while the French oak gives spice, making for the perfect balance.  This Reserva was bottled in November 2013 and was aged in bottle for 18 months before being released to the market. 

Beronia Reserva 2011 shows an intense cherry red colour.  On the nose, attractive aromas of candied fruits and plum conserve are in perfect harmony with sweet chocolate. On the palate this wine proves itself as being of great character with elegant tannins which give the wine both structure and body. It has a long finish.

This wine is perfect to serve with red meats, game and roasts.  It is recommended that you drink this wine before 2024.

Beronia Graciano Rioja 2012 (1x 75cl)

Graciano is relatively scarce in the Rioja region, normally only used in blends with Tempranillo as it is ideal for ageing due to its high levels of acidity. It is an interesting variety which gives a unique aroma that is much more intense than other varieties in Rioja. During alcoholic fermentation great colour extraction takes place. The wine is then aged in new French oak barrels for six months. This wine was bottled in September 2014 and was released to the market after 6 months of sitting in bottle.

Beronia Graciano 2012 shows an intense black cherry colour.  On the nose it has intense aromas of petals and red fruits.  Touches of green pepper blended with dried fruits almonds and walnuts.  On the palate it is fresh and lively with balanced acidity. There are chocolate notes as well as hints of cranberry and cocoa.  This is an elegant, fresh and well structured wine with sweet tannins and a velvety texture.

Beronia Gran Reserva 2008 - March 2017 Decanter review

The 2008 harvest was classified by the Rioja Regulatory Council as 'Very Good' as it showed extremely high quality which allowed for the production of exceptional wines (including this one!).

For the production of this Gran Reserva, the best grapes from the oldest vineyards were hand-harvested. Following the harvest, the best bunches were selected in the winery. The grapes then underwent a slow and controlled alcoholic fermentation with periodic pumping over to extract colour and aromas.  Following this, the wine remained in French oak barrels for 26 months.  

Beronia Gran Reserva 2008 shows a powerful and deep maroon colour. On the nose, it is intense and complex with dried fruits (such as dates) standing out over a base of chocolate and sweet spice from the French oak. On the palate this wine is silky and meaty with pleasant tannins, giving structure and complexity.  This wine shows great personality with body, elegance and intense flavours.

This Gran Reserva is best when decanted before serving due to the long time it has spent ageing in the bottle.  It is ideal when served with red meats, game, mature cheeses and also with chocolate desserts.  Drink it now or you can keep this wine until 2024 before opening it.

Beronia Tempranillo Special Production Rioja 2014 (1 x 75cl)

It's on our Christmas List because ... this is a stunning, unusual, boutique-but-afforable Rioja made from 100% Tempranillo (rare in a Rioja, more the preserve of Riberas) that is full bodied with a lighter balance of oak.  We have also listed some of Beronia's other great Riojas at the foot of this page that we feel are equally worthy.

Bodegas Beronia is quintessentially Rioja. Its wines are defined by the region and the soils in which the vines are grown, and its name linked to the history of the land where the winery is found. In the 3rd Century BC the area known as Rioja today was inhabited by a celtic tribe called the ‘Berones’. The founding ethos of Beronia is strongly allied to the origins of La Rioja. Beronia was founded in 1973 by a group of businessmen, friends from the Basque country who would visit La Rioja on holiday. They decided, to produce their own wines to enjoy with the local cuisine,  specialising in Reserva and Gran Reserva style wines. Today Beronia is one of the most renowned Spanish wineries, producing traditional Rioja wines with personality and Beronia style.  

This unique wine undergoes double fermentation, both alcoholic and malolactic, in American oak barrels. The wine remains for a total of 9 months in the same barrels with periodic batonage. Bottled in March 2015 the wine will continue ageing for a minimum of 6 months before being released to the market.

Intense and deep cherry colour with high intensity. An unusual nose with red fruits and notes of chocolate, cocoa, liquorice and cinnamon from the American oak. Shows a harmonious palate with the cherry dominating. Well integrated oak after 9 months in barrel. Round and fresh, ideal for those looking for something different.

Perfect with smoked meats or fish, patés and cured meats. Recomended consumption over the next 5 years.

The grapes used are from vines aged over 20 years old. The vines are grown in accordance with traditional practices, no herbicides and limited use of pesticides and fungicides.

Bodegas Protos Crianza 2013 (1x75cl)

The guiding philosophy of Protos is "Quality above all". For this reason, the whole process leading to the production of their wine undergoes an in-depth analysis. The vineyards are controlled exhaustively by both technicians and experts throughout the growth cycle, yielding a production of the highest quality. This also gives them in-depth information about all the grapes to be used before they reach the winery.

Harvesting is 100% manual. For several years, half of the production has been gathered in 20-kilo boxes; the grapes are then spread over sorting tables. This allows them to guarantee that only completely healthy, whole grapes reach the fermentation tanks.

This wine spent 14 months in French (⅔) and American (⅓) oak barrels before maturing in bottle for a further 12 months.

The Protos Crianza has a bright and intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.  On the nose there are red fruit aromas which are powerful yet elegant, with a dry minerality as well as some cocoa bean, creamy oak and hints of spices. The flavour is rich and powerful, fruity with good acidity, a smoky aftertaste and a long toasty finish.

This wine is a good match for grilled red meat, cured meat, game birds, small game, light stews and mild cheese.
