Elegant. Smooth. Classic. This Rioja is a real treat!

Tasting notes

Spicy black fruits, supple vanilla and juicy raspberry.

Grapes for this classic Rioja are sourced from the Gonzalo's La Vallonda vineyard area. Part whole-bunch vinifed, 2 months barrel ageing in old wood, 3 months in bottle means there's a just touch of old oak, without it being too pronounced. 

Food pairings

Incredible on its own, or as you'd expect it pairs particularly well with Spanish food especially lamb and pork and recipes that contain red peppers, pimenton, garlic and saffron.

About the winemaker

Gonzalo Rodriguez tends his 9 hectares of vines in Abalos, Rioja Alavesa, with real love and energy. He founded his own bodegas after tiring of the larger ‘factories’ he was working for. His vines are some of the oldest and highest in Rioja, and the quality and taste shines through. He constantly experiments and he takes the best experiments to evolve his vintages and styles. 

Sustainability credentials: Good (2*) 

Organic over all 9 hectares but uncertified. Great use of ground cover and minimal tillage, teaming with biodiversity.

Other info: Red. 14%Vol. Tempranillo, Mazuelo, Viura. 2016 Vintage.
