Grapes are sourced from the Ygay Estate: 300 hectares of vineyards surrounding the winery in the southernmost point of Rioja Alta. Altitude ranges from 320 to 485 meters above sea level The wine is aged for 19 months in 225 litre American oak barrels.
Pair with steamed and grilled hake loin, prawns with their coral and truffle aroma; baked unsalted cod with onion and green peppers; grilled beef tenderloin, green asparagus and carrot purée; creamy carnaroli rice with truffles and foiemi – cuit; selection of creamy and blue cheeses, red wine compote and sour cherries.
Beautifully perfumed with dried flowers, walnuts and violets to the dark berries on the nose. Full-bodied, yet very tight and refined with creamy, chewy tannins that are polished and poised. A lively, finely crafted red. Nice to drink now, but shows excellent potential for the future. James Suckling – 95
