A juicy, young Rioja using the fruit from the same vineyards the provide grapes for Hacienda Grimon's mature Riojas. Aromas of red cherries blackcurrant, and a touch of citrus. On the palate is it very silky, fruity and round. There's a very good balance of acidity, fruit and soft tannins on a long finish.
Try this slightly chilled with a plate of chorizo and slices of toasted bread drizzled in olive oil.
"A must for any Rioja lovers who prefer a less oaky wine, this fresh and fruity Tempranillo is very satisfying drop. I'd enjoy this with a few small tapas style dishes shared among with friends."
