Hints of fresh fruit, redcurrants, blueberries. When swirled, reminders of spices, pipe tobacco and lactic nuances appear. A supple, fresh attack. Light tannins as it passes through the mouth, with liveliness, fruit flavours and herbs such as coriander, along with lactic nuances recalling cream patisserie. Long and flavoursome in the finish.
"This is reduced from €17 for August and is a steal at this price. Alavesa is the smallest of the three Rioja sub-regions which are often equal in quality to Rioja Alta. This is a joven (lightly aged) Rioja packed with ripe soft fruits and a perfect summer wine amenable to being served cool. Soft blackberry and blueberry aromas with a hit of blueberry muffin creaminess, fruity and juicy and packed with pleasure." Irish Examiner, Leslie Williams, August 10th 2021.
