In a nutshell:
A classy and compelling biodynamic Rioja with a subtle and elegant oak character.
Abel Mendoza is one of the legendary winemakers of Rioja; he's a proper old school vigneron who cares passionately about his vineyards - which consist of many small plots scattered around the border of Rioja Alta and Alavesa. His wines are not stamped with any particular style, each wine conveys the individualities of the land and the year. This is a deeply coloured and very classy wine with a pure and intense bouquet of crushed fruits, spice and oak. An elegant and smooth full-bodied wine with real complexity and long length.
When to drink:
Ripe and ready to drink thi sis great with pork, poultry, tomato sauce based pasta, and mushroom recipes.
