Region: Rioja, Spain
Rioja Vega Gran Reserva 2013
75% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano, 5% Mazuelo
Aged for 29 months in American oak and 36 months in bottle before release. Aromas of very mature fruit (raisins, compote) are accompanied by cinnamon, vanilla & toasted bread. In the background hints of anise and liquorice are also found. Incredibly long palate with intense flavours of fruit oak and spice. Heavenly!
