Don Jacobo Vendimia Seleccionada Ecológico 2022



This 100% Tempranillo, from vines ranging from 40 to 60 years in age, comes from organic vineyards on the hillside of Moncalvillo in Rioja Alta. The wine gets an initial 6 months in American oak barrels followed by a minimum 6 months maturation in bottle.

Richly coloured dark cherry red with violet reflections, this shows aromas of summer berries, tobacco leaf and woodspice. The palate is full and richly layered, sweet raspberry and blueberry fruit framed by fine tannins, with a light touch of savoury oak, spice and coffee beans, finishing with elements of soy and vanilla.

Drinks perfectly well on its own but sings with grilled meats or roasted vegetables, characuterie and hard cheeses.

Producer: Bodegas Corral (Don Jacobo)

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.
