Why do we love this wine?

Finca de la Rica, who make this outstanding tempranillo, are one of our all time favourite Rioja producers. They work with around forty small plots of old vines across Rioja Alavesa and make small volumes of top-quality wine. Cabezadas de Matadula is their top-top wine - the best, highest part (Cabezadas) of their best vineyard (Matadula). This epic site in Labastida has chalky-clay soils, which paired with high elevation and vine age make a very complex wine. This is a great example of small-batch, single vineyard Rioja that truely speaks of site.

So, if all of the above doesn’t impress you, let me tell you about the wine. The 100% tempranillo is hand-picked, sorted and then after a long ferment, sees 18 months in what the producer calls “probably, the best French barrels produced until now”. I’d say that Rioja winemakers are VERY qualified to make such claims! The wine is as powerful as you may expect, but also with incredible finesse and detail. Detail that will unravel in a decanter and a large glass. There is a core of concentrated berries, earthy spice and beautifully interwoven oak tannin. This is a red wine lovers dream.
