There’s a long tradition in Spain of cellaring wines for an extended amount of time and only releasing them when ready to drink. This is great news for lovers of mature reds as there’s no need to age these bottles; they’re old enough to drink the moment you pull them out of your case.
Made by brothers Victor and David Manzanos, whose family have been making wines in Rioja for 125 years
The grapes are selected from prime Navarra vineyards and the wine is barrel-aged for two years giving lots of smoky, vanilla oak complexity
A quality wine that combines the dark fruits of Cabernet Sauvignon with the silky texture of Tempranillo and juicy freshness of Garnacha
Tasting note: A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha and Tempranillo aged for two years in barrel, elegant and smooth with ripe red and black berry fruits enhanced by a classic touch of toasty oak. With soft velvety tannins and a long, rich finish, it’s the perfect match for char-grilled meats or a vegetable paella.
