Production

Produced from 40 year old vines grown on the slopes of the Sierra Yergas, around Quel, just south of the River Ebro in Rioja Baja. Predominantly Tempranillo grown in the La Montesa vineyard, blended with Garnacha from Siete Caminos. Following a long maceration period, the wine spends 12 months in 60% American and 40% French oak barrels (both used and new). This is followed by a further 12 months in bottle prior to release.

Tasting notes

Intense black fruit and warm spice on the nose. Good depth of flavour on the palate with ripe, plush fruit, balancing freshness and supple tannins. A very approachable yet classic Crianza.

Food match

This wine pairs well with roast chicken and game, meaty pasta and hard cheeses.
