Classic benchmark Rioja that delivers consistently and presents good value.
Vibrant red leading slightly towards amber. Light fresh texture with notes of vanilla and dried berry aromas. Firm tannins and good balance.
Food pairing - goes well with all meat dishes however prepared. A perfect partner to a leg of New Season Welsh Lamb stuffed with wild garlic, rosemary and anchovies.
