Wine Note

Sierra Cantabria Rioja

Made from a single vineyard with Garnacha planted in 1927 in San Vicente. Quite rare to find single varietal Garnacha from the Rioja Alta sub-region.
Sierra Cantabria is situated in the heart of the town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra which is high altitude -over 1100m above sea level.
Great colour for Grenache (Garnacha). Warm red berry fruits, pepper, spice and oak on the inviting nose. Raspberry leading to cherry and plum on the palate, bright with white pepper, some meaty notes and toasty vanilla oak.
Quite a big, full flavoured wine, but also of real immediacy, especially with food. I like it a lot, modern styled but retaining a lot of Rioja character.
