This stunning release was crafted by super-talented winemaker, Carlos Bermejo Lopez, from an outstanding single vineyard of old Tempranillo and Garnacha vines. It's a wine that pays homage to the traditional style of Rioja but one with a spring in its step. This smooth raspberry and cranberry-kissed wine is a beauty with lithe fruit notes and no ugly lingering tannins or woodwork. If you like unruffled, languid reds with silky notes and haunting mulberry and fresh herb flavours then this is your wine.
From an old bodega of prime vineyards in Alfaro, Rioja, that has an enviable reputation for making first class wines in the traditional Rioja style. Wine has been made here for six generations now.
What can we tell you about Rioja that you don't already know? Spain pre-eminent wine region has long held the crown, producing wines that were aged both in cask and bottle, according to a rigid quality scheme, to deliver the utmost seduction. Wines that would far rather give you a great big, warm hug than ask you if you'd spilled their pint.
Type: Grenache blend
This Maroma Crianza comes from Rioja's less illustrious neighbour, which is exactly why we love it. With the right grower, Navarra stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Rioja, almost always offering better value for money!
A vintage sequel to the incredibly impressive Zinio 2009. This beauty is still from the same precious plot of fine, old Garnacha vines, but with even more succulent fruit to delight. This is a perfumed treasure that we are glad we begged Maria to create!
This is single vineyard stock, from the La Cañada block, a small piece of hallowed turf that Pilar, the winemaker, singled out for us. We asked for a top-drawer young wine - she delivered a wine with juicy freshness and a bright purity that shines in the glass.
