About This Wine...
“ripe plum and blackberry aromas with a touch of vanilla and spice” Leslie Williams in the Irish Examiner, January 2018
Founded in 1928, although the family can trace their roots in Rioja soil over two centuries. They have 90 organically managed hectares in the hills of the cooler Rioja Alavesa region, as well as long term contracts with growers covering a further 200 hectares of mixed regime viticulture. This is a dynamic, forward looking producer making elegant, fruit-filled wines which are neither over-oaked, nor over- alcoholic.
