Why do we love this wine?

We’re pleased to welcome back another vintage of El Buscador (the Searcher) by the team at Finca de la Rica in Spain’s most famous region of La Rioja. Finca de la Rica are some of the nicest guys in the wine industry. You don’t go a minute with them without wine in your glass, food on your plate and a good chat. Muy buena gente.

Like the 2016, this is top-notch Rioja. You can tell just by looking at it. It looks somehow livelier in the glass, more vital and intense. Tempranillo and garnacha make up the mix here (90/10%), singing of juicy cherries and plums. Oak treatment comprises of a 70-30 French-American split, giving darker toasty notes and a background coconuty hint. The wine is deep and complex, but also fun and never too imposing. For fans of the 2016, this new vintage is a touch more concentrated, as it contains declassified barrels of some of their top sites.
