From a family owned winery with 125 years of history. The vineyards are located within the Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. Both areas offer a balanced, structured soil composition of sand, lime and clay. They are also slightly alkaline, with moderate water in the summer.
The old vine estate vineyards consist of 14 small parcels, that are cultivated separately to take advantage of the various microclimates and soil types. Natural organic matter is used to fertilize the vineyards, as stems, skins and pruning remains are put back into the earth. This combination of soils and natural farming infuses the fruit with distinctive characteristics that result in wines of exceptional quality.
This wine is available in Ocado
This wine is made from 100% Tempranillo, using grapes selected from their own vineyards in Rioja, from vines 20 – 60 years old. The wine has been aged for 20 months in barrel, followed by a further 16 months in bottle. It has complex aromas of intense black fruits, oak and spice, and is elegant and full bodied on the palate with a lingering finish.
Served at room temperature, it is an excellent partner with game dishes such as venison, pheasant or rabbit casseroles, or fine chesses such as mature Cheddar of Comté.
