Rioja - Wine region in the North Central part of Spain with a special microclimate with Atlantic and Mediterranean influence. Soils are diverse with chalky, sandstone and gravel composition. Tempranillo is the main grape varietal, with some Garnacha in certain areas.
80% Grenache and 20% Viura (aka Macabeo). Pale, clean peach pink in color. The nose features aromas of freshly picked raspberries and cherries as well as stone fruits. Light to medium-bodied, featuring zesty red fruit, tart peach and cantaloupe with saline minerals and high, well-balanced acidity with spicy notes lingering on the finish. This one is a top QPR. 13% Abv. (Gabe Geller)
Beautiful pale, pale pink. Very good legs indicating a rich viscosity, elegant fresh nose but does not jump out. Amazing wine for quaffing with light dishes. Just makes you want to relax in the backyard or poolside. Could not figure out what this was or its country of origin, but when it was revealed I was blown away. This quality at this price? Amazing! 174 cases and I’m calling all my customers as I write this, so better hurry or I’ll take it all. (Jay Buchsbaum)
Serve at 6ºC (45ºF) to 8ºC (49ºF). Ideal as an aperitif and cold dishes such as white asparagus, seafood salad or risottos.
