Description

Fine example of a joven or unoaked Rioja, this Tempranillo is grown in certified organic vineyards in Rioja Alta at 500m altitude. Fermentation is all in steel, no oak involved in either fermentation or maturation.

It’s immaculately clean, violet-red in colour with pronounced summer fruits notes of blackberry, raspberry and strawberry. The palate is crisp and focused, fine tannins and a gentle acidity framing all that sumptuous fresh fruit, a fine line of minerality flowing through to the finish. A really delicious every-occasion red.

Producer: Bodegas Corral

Bodegas Corral was established in 1898 and remains in the Corral family hands to this day. The Don Jacobo brand that adorns most of winery's labels is named after the pilgrimage Way of St. James, or Camino de Santiago, with Corral the only winery in Rioja to sit right on the world heritage route.

Corral were early adopters to organic growing and, despite their modest size compared to some of the huge commercial producers in the region, have one of the largest holdings of organic vineyards in Rioja. By 2023 the entire vineyard holdings will be certified organic and all wines are already vegan certified. The philosophy is to sacrifice volume for quality and environmental harmony, to future proof the winery and vineyards, and make sure that the next generation of the family inherit something very special.

Vineyard plantings include indigenous varietals Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Viura, with increasing focus on rarer varietals such as Tempranillo Blanco, Graciano, Maturana Tinta and Blanco, and Garnacha Blanca.
