Sierra Cantabria Seleccion Rioja 2018
- Medium bodied
- Rioja DOC
Tempranillo is Spain’s superstar red grape and this temp is from one of Rioja’s best - Sierra Cantabria - part of the empire that has been owned and run by the Erugen family since 1870. They’ve had a while to work out how to make superb Rioja and we are grateful for their hard work and dedication. Racy red cherries, juicy-as-hell plums, exotic spices… they’ve pieced it all together perfectly. There’s a touch of oak, as you’d imagine, but most of the power in this medium-bodied wine is from fruit. Next time you’re out under the pergola with your mates, barbie sizzling away quietly to the side, sun shining happily in the sky, leave the shiraz alone! Pull out a bottle of this instead.
“Dust and old spice cupboard scents over dried red berries. Gloss and chew to texture, brighter feeling in the palate, more primary, red berry fruitiness, supple tannins, lots of peppery and woody spice. Old-school kind of feel with a new-school bent. Very nice drinking.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
