Rioja Alavesa is the smallest of the three wine-producing sub-regions in Rioja, Spain and is situated to the north of the Ebro River. It is the closest of the three sub-zones to the Atlantic Ocean and thus the one most influenced by its cooling effects. This winery’s unique style is a reflection of its superior plots within the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria, and is distinguished by its use of stringent grape selection methods and use of new French Oak barrels.
WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES
Gorgeous aromas of dark raspberry, cherry, spice, cedar and tobacco are prominent immediately. The palate is medium, showing exquisite balance; a near perfect combination of elegance and power. As it develops, light hints of vanilla begin to shine through.
