  • Sunday Times Wine Club Vintage Festival, 2019

Outside of Spain, we Brits drink more Rioja than anyone else. And if they keep making classic examples like this, that’s unlikely to change. In exchange for an excellent deal, we agreed not to name the famous cellar behind this magnificent Crianza.

Buyer Beth Willard has done it again. Using her extensive network of contacts, she’s tracked down another stunning Rioja for the Selección Especial series. These fine wine bargains have just one catch: we’re forbidden to name the wineries. And in this case, it’s a famous family bodega whose wines are highly prized throughout the world. To clear cellar space, they passed on the final cases of this Crianza in a one off secret deal. It was crafted in the 2015 vintage – classified “muy bueno” – with fruit sourced from the oldest, low yielding vines to ensure maximum concentration. After a slow fermentation, the wine was treated to a year in US oak and two years in bottle, prior to release. Perfect now, it’s the classic match for roast lamb.

"This fruit-first Crianza is the style of wine you’ll find the locals enjoying in Rioja’s tapas bars" Beth Willard
