Bodegas Exeo 'Cifras' Rioja 2015

Rioja, Spain

Richly perfumed with heady scents of ripe raspberry, black cherry and caramel. The big, expansive wash opens up beautifully with air time to reveal intriguing nuances of dried fruits, cola, toffee and vanilla, alongside the juicy Grenache fruit. Unique take on Rioja!

Decant for an hour or two and try with walnut-crusted pork chops and figs.

This fine Spanish red is made wholly from Garnacha (known as Grenache elsewhere in the wine world) - unusual for a Rioja, which is typically either mostly or all Tempranillo. The maturation is mostly in traditional concrete 'eggs' (i.e. egg-shaped vats), with just a tenth of the blend seeing time in oak.

Bodegas Exeo is a project of artisan Alavesa house Tierra Agricola, based in the foothills of the Cantabrian mountains. The 25 year-old vineyard - La Hueta - is planted on shallow clay soils on a steep, south-facing slope that is perfect for heat-loving Grenache. Riojas are released ready to drink and don't need extra bottle ageing.
