Not only does this Gran Reserva have eight years of maturity, it also comes from a winemaker used to crafting £45 Rioja. Silky dried fruit rippled with mocha and spice, this Gran Reserva from Navarra has even more richness from Cabernet and Merlot.
Step over Rioja’s border into ancient, sleepy Navarra. There you’ll find some of the finest, best value, barrel aged reds in Spain – if not the world! And that’s especially true of this oh-so-smooth Spanish red. You see this is not only a Gran Reserva with eight years of mellow maturity, it also comes from a winemaker used to making top echelon Rioja. He’s about to bring in a new harvest and needs space in the cellar. So, in exchange for anonymity, he’s offered a very special price on his 2012. You'll enjoy silky dried fruit flavours, layered with mocha and spice, beautifully silky tannins and a very long finish. All the flavour and style of top Gran Reserva Rioja, but at nowhere near the same expensive price. Open early and savour.
"Navarra’s my top hunting ground for the best-value Spanish reds. I'm delighted to share this one"
