Description

Rioja, Spain’s flagship wine region

Nestled between the Sierra de Cantabria and Sierra de la Demanda, in the north of Spain around 80 miles south of Bilbao, Rioja, Spain’s flagship wine region, is home to more than 600 wineries.
Spanning an area a little more than 60 miles long, by 25 miles wide along the banks of the river Ebro.
Rioja’s unique geographic location makes it perfect for wine production, with the surrounding mountains moderating both the cooling effects of the Atlantic and the intense heat of the Mediterranean.

Rioja produces a diverse range of wines, from young, sprightly whites to mature, barrel aged reds.
The Tempranillo grape is king in the region, producing reds and roses in an array of styles but Garancha, Graciano, Maturana and Mazuelo all play important roles both in blends and increasingly on their own as single varietals.
White wines from the region range from fresh, zesty styles to traditional styles barrel aged in barrels for months, sometimes years.

Expert reviews

"This has all of the quality that you'd expect from a Gran Reserva Rioja made by a respected producer. There's a fine balance of developing, soft tannins and ripe fruit. Structured and stylish, there are aromas of strawberry, cherry and red berries, mingling with a leathery smokiness typical of top quality Rioja. Hints of herbs and vanilla on the nose complement the full mouthfeel. Harmonious and balanaced, this is a superb example of character and typicity."
