The wine has a delicious nose of blackberries and blackcurrant , with hints of liquorice. On the palate these fruit continue with gentle tannins and good acidity.

Great with grilled meats, pizza, pasta and casseroles

Asúa is made from carefully selected, hand harvested grapes from vineyards in Haro, Rioja Alta.

Alcholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, where the wine macerates until the desired colour and structure were achieved. The malolactic fermentation was then completed in concrete tanks, polishing the wine and fine-tuning its acidity. Ageing then took place in French and American oak barrels at 50% during 18 months after which the wine was bottled and then stored in cellars where the wine ages prior being released to the market.
