Tasting Notes: Classy unoaked Tempranillo - juicy fruit and spice and good length. A modern, vibrant, unoaked tempranillo. Oozing with pure, vibrant, juicy red fruits, fresh cherries and plums with hints of spicy complexity. Soft and easy to drink with approachable ripe fruit yet well-structured, with super light tannins. A great entry level Rioja.

Producer Details: Grapes are sourced from this family company's 200 hectares around Haro and Briones in Rioja Alta and the quality of the range stems from the excellence of the fruit from these vineyards. The first vintage was 2003 and the aim is to produce classic styles of Rioja which combine modern fruit with real substance and quality at sensible prices.

In The Vineyard: From selected Tempranillo grapes, predominantly from Rioja Alta, around Haro and Briones.

In The Winery: Fermentation at 26 to 28C with 6 to 8 days maceration on the skins. No oak ageing. Bottled early.
