Tasting note: The aesthetic evolution over the last few years in Spain's greatest wine region leaves its winemakers with more style alternatives than ever before - and fortunate drinkers with a range of different translations of these propitious soils and skies. The Rioja that won its way through to our Best in Show selection this year is perhaps best described as a 'new classic' - rather deeper and more primary in colour, scent and expressive force than the limpid, time-burnished classics of the past, yet at the same time packed with the classic Rioja virtues of gentle, brimmingly ripe fruits, warmth, glowing richness, supple tannins and understated but guiding acidity. It's absolutely accessible now, yet a few years will help ease back the focus and force of the fruits to the benefit of further gentleness and a still warmer glow.
Buyers’ feedback: Excellent quality in classy and serious packaging. A premium style with the potential to compete with some of the best and biggest names from this region. Justifiably self confident both in and out of the bottle - Impressive wine.
