A modern, young and fresh style of Rioja that is about fruit, not oak or extended aging. Your next BBQ wine!

Sandra Bravo is a seriously exciting winemaker. Working with some of the highest altitude vineyards in Rioja – with plots of very old vines, she is hunting out freshness and purity. Having travelled the world and made wines in Bordeaux, Tuscany, New Zealand and California she has returned to Spain with her eyes wide open and a brave ambition to show the different expressions of Rioja. It does not all have to be blended and heavily-oaked any more. Her delicately shaped – intensely pure wines are a revelation. With a range now of different releases each profiling a particular vineyard or a particular grape variety she is making some of the most drinkable and delicious wines in the region. No surprises she was crowned the 2019 ‘Young Winemaker of the Year’ by Rioja expert and wine critic Tim Atkin MW.

Tasting Note:
Definitely a different style of Rioja. This is fresh, elegant, and at the same time wonderfully floral with a beautiful bright colour with purple hues around the rim. On the palate this wine is fresh and juicy, making it a lot of fun to drink. The crunchy raspberry, cranberry, damson, blueberries and dark cherry with a floral violets and Mediterranean herbs complement the delicate chocolate and subtle spice and toasted notes from maturation in oak. An elegant mouth feel with round and sweet tannins puts this in perfect balance with natural acidity, the finish is kind of brilliant!

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Medium tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium finish.
