In a nutshell:
A rich and fragrant Spanish red blend from hot and arid Aragon.
The name of this wine, El Risco, which means 'the crag' is a reference to the rugged Aragonese terrain in the high altitude vineyards of Calatayud where the old bush vines that go into this wine grow. A blend of Syrah, with a dash of Garnacha and Bobal the winemaking here was very simple. A small proportion of whole bunches underwent a seven day maceration and subsequently the wine was aged for a few months in tank before being bottled without any fining and a light filtration. The result is a sweet-scented fresh and lively wine with a wonderfully fruity character.
When to drink:
An easy drinking, versatile red that's good with things like pasta, paella and casseroles, or just by itself.
