Young Red wine
A delightfully fruity Rioja at a very reasonable price. Rioja is the foremost, and probably most recognised wine region in Spain. 100% Tempranillo,
Dark cherry in colour, with aromas of red fruits, cherries and aniseed. Good acidity and well balanced.
It was actually a disease in Bordeaux that drove many vignerons into neighbouring Spain to ply their trade, in the late 19th century. Interestingly they continued with tried and tested winemaking methods, selling their wine back to the French. No mean feat!
