Tasting Notes

A bright beauty of a wine, made from Tempranillo grapes grown on small bush vines in the Navarra region of Spain.

Full of dark plum and blackcurrent fruit flavours, this is a joyous juicy red that packs a real punch.

One for sausages and mash, or spicy tomato pasta dishes.

Storage Instructions

To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 2 years of purchase.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: "There's a superb vanilla and strawberry nose on this punchy Tempranillo, the palate is long and lithe and it's not too oaky or harsh on the finish. You should head towards this wine if you like Rioja but don't really want to spend a tenner."

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 30/05/2014
