La Hoja Rioja Crianza 2015

14.99

Description

Easy drinking, fruit-forward Crianza from the hills of the Basque Country. Velvety, fresh and lively – a real winner! Captivating nose of black cherry, vanilla and cocoa. The mid-weight, velvety palate is flavoursome, with notes of redcurrant, nutmeg and classy oak to the fore. Light and fresh, with lifted aromas from the soupçon of white grape Viura in the blend.

A blend of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha and 5% (white) Viura, this Crianza comes from 15-year-old vineyards, at 550m altitude. It’s aged for one year in new French and American oak barrels.

Drink on its own, with a cheese plate, roast lamb or a hearty paella.

Producer: Tierra y Vino

With ancestors from Labastida and San Vicente and the proud emblem of their father Fidel as their muse, the wines of family collective Tierra y Vino are grown in thirty hectares facing the slopes of the Toloño mountain. The range of varieties grown on the vineyards, some of which are a hundred-years-old, are Tempranillo, red and white garnacha, viura, graciano and malvasia, which is grown in the oldest vineyards. Underneath the main winery based in the old Jewish neighbourhood in Labastida, there is a curious network of four different caves joined together, dating from 1400-1500 where the wines rest peacefully in 500 litre oak casks with the temperature and humidity constantly maintained the whole year round.
