A long time customer favourite, La Cantera is the go-to wine for any fan of smooth, perfectly aged Spanish reds. It gains Reserva status from patient ageing in barrel and bottle, which adds delicious toasty oak notes to its mature ripe red fruits.

La Cantera is so reassuringly smooth and welcoming that each new vintage release is like the return of an old friend. Well, it is made by one of our greatest friends in Spain, Javier Domeque. He’s been making this gloriously mature treasure exclusively for us for nearly 20 years, and only ever ships La Cantera when it’s been aged to smooth, mellow perfection. Javier works under the radar in Cariñena, where wine has been made for 2,000 years. But the region is overlooked in favour of world-famous neighbour Rioja, so you enjoy superb value for money here (and, in the case of La Cantera, Rioja-style quality). This is made from old-vine Garnacha and Tempranillo and has rich, deep red berry flavours softened by years in barrel and bottle.
