SANTALBA VINA HERMOSA TINTO GRAN RESERVA 2015
£19.20

100% Tempranillo from Santalba’s selected vineyards in Gimileo, at the heart of La Rioja Alta made only in years classified as «excellent» by the Consejo Regulador, the appellation body of La Rioja.

Temperature-controlled fermentation takes place with long periods of maceration and gentle pumping-over to produce wine with considerable structure, tannin, concentration and colour, making it highly suitable for a long period of ageing. After 26 months in American oak barrels the ageing process continues in the bottle, where the wine acquires the further refining needed before it can be sold. The nose and flavour of this Gran Reserva will improve in bottle during the following years.

Intense but balanced and silky in the mouth, longlasting and with an attractiveness that will open up and improve for hours in the glass. Great potential to age in bottle. 

ABV 14%
