Averys have worked closely with Bodegas Manzanos to create our superb own label Rioja Crianza. With combined winemaking experience spanning over 440 years, Averys and Manzanos have crafted a wine that displays the very best characteristics of the Rioja region.
The blend consists of Tempranillo; harvested from the higher zones of Rioja Alta, Garnacha; from the best zones of Rioja Oriental, and a touch of Graciano
This Crianza spends 18 – 24 months in French oak resulting in a complexed, well-structured wine
“I’m in the tasting room at Manzanos and the Crianza for the Averys label is stunning!”
Beth Willard – Averys Wine Buyer
Tasting note: Brimming with raspberries, red cherries and chocolate, the palate is elegant and fresh with red fruits, spice and soft, supple tannins. With a long finish you’ll want to savour of redcurrant, plum, dates and figs.
