Vinedos Sierra Cantabria, Rioja Amancio, Spain, 2014


“Complicity with Mother Earth” is this wineries ethos....and we like the sound of that. Around since 1870 and now on their 5th generation, here we have 40+ year old Tempranillo vines from a single vineyard. Unbelievable concentration of aromas and flavours which packs an almighty palate punch. Mix that kind of concentration with twenty-four months in oak and we find a cracker of a wine which delivers on all fronts.


Plum. Aromatic liquorice. Currant. Fig. Oak
