Tasting Notes

Previously known as Tesco finest* Viña Mara Rioja Reserva.

Made for Tesco exclusively by Baron de Ley, this is 100%
Tempranillo and aged in American oak barrels.

It is a great combination, producing a rich, powerful wine with raspberry and vanilla flavours, together with a touch of spice.

Lovely with lamb chops.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2011 vintage, Fiona Beckett said: “A more traditional oak-aged red such as Viña del Cura Rioja Reserva from Baron de Ley. Serve with lamb tagine."

Fiona Beckett - The Guardian Magazine 09/04/2016

Of the 2011 vintge, Aldo Zilli said: "Tesco Finest Viña del Cura Rioja Reserva .... is a great combination of rich raspberry and vanilla flavours, together with a touch of spice."

Aldo Zilli - Saturday Magazine, Daily Express 04/06/2016

Of the 2011 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "......... this is a very classic rioja, made for Tesco by Baron de Ley, and it smells great. Think mellow and relaxed: old barns, countryside, straw bales, sun-warmed strawberries, a tiny bit of furniture polish and warm vanilla, with a spicy serration that comes from the oak. Gorgeous stuff."

Victoria Moore - Weekend, Daily Telegraph 04/06/2016

Background

History

Barón de Ley is a winery founded in 1985 by a small group of Rioja wine professionals and who conceive and start a project of innovative and unique characteristics in this prestigious DOCa. The original Baron de Ley project was based on the idea of developing a purely “vineyard driven” winery, oriented to the production of high quality wines from own vineyards. The other main guideline behind the project was to develop and implement a new style of “modern” Rioja wines

Regional info

The winery is 320 ha located in Rioja Baja on Alluvial soils, rich in clays and limestone. Clear Mediterranean influence, which implies more insolation and less rains than in the western Rioja areas, which creates optimal conditions for the obtention of wines with more colour, concentration and poliphenolic maturation
