Our top selling red of 2018 is a fusion of La Rioja’s three predominant grapes, aged in used oak for around 4 months to produce a young and fresh roble with an explosion of fruity aromas and a silky, creamy texture.
A deep red colour, dense and bright in appearance, there are pronounced aromas of cherry and strawberry, with mineral and floral notes. A luscious palate of strawberry and cranberry flavours supply a sweetness that contrasts with the pleasant acidity, the finish soft, elegant and long.
"Expressive, wild black fruits, touch of sweet spices... super pleasant."
"Sensational, singular Rioja from an organic vineyard that was planted in 1980... offers up a beautiful black cherry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with strawberry jam, cedarwood and graphite. Superb, opulent, luscious, fruit-forward red."
The Wine Advocate
The fresh and fruit-driven 2016 Bozeto de Exopto is a blend of 50% Garnacha, 40% Tempranillo and 10% Graciano, to provide acidity and freshness. The different grapes were aged separately for seven months, the Garnacha in concrete, some Tempranillo in oak vats and the remaining Tempranillo and Graciano in well-seasoned, neutral barriques. It's a fruit-driven, slightly grapey red, and this cuvée, with its high percentage of juicy, round and ripe Garnacha, has more of a Mediterranean character. Precise and clean. 90 points.
