SENSATIONAL SAVINGS ON CLASSIC RIOJA!

You'll Turn Heads with this Special Wine

Five Generations of Winemaking, from One of the World's Most Popular Red Wine Regions. Classic Rioja with a saving of up to $12 dollars off a bottle!

Tempranillo's meteoric rise to fame has well and truly cemented Rioja as one of the world's most popular wine regions. It's another one of the European Red varietals that Kiwis really identify with, due to it's incredible vibrant fruit and its well balanced tannin structure!

The Sierra Cantabria Seleccion is a classic example of quality Rioja from a fifth generation family owned and run winery. The Eguren Family have been quietly perfecting their craft, passing the knowledge along from parent to child since 1870, and nowadays they own six wineries in total.
Made from 100% Tempranillo and aged for six months in stainless steel to retain its fruit freshness, and then a further six months in a blend of both American and French Oak. This preserves the incredible vibrancy and tannin structure of the Tempranillo, and then rounds out the edges to give a creamy texture and a touch of vanilla to the long lingering finish.

This wine is a crowd pleaser, and bound to turn a few heads at your next gathering with friends and family. Perfect for the change in season as it matches well with slow cooked meats, rich gravy or sauces, and perfect with hard cheeses and cured meats.

You could pay up to $34.99 elsewhere for this wine...and it's worth every penny of that, but today you'll only pay $22.99 with our superb negotiation skills ... And that's what we call a BARGAIN! Shop now while stocks last.

Description

An elegant and stylish take on Rioja, this 100% Tempranillo sees 2/3 American oak and 1/3 French during its oak maturation. A bold and rustic style of wine, each glass is better than the last as it improves with airtime, gaining richness and complexity. Drink young or cellar through 2025 and likely beyond.

Smells

A hint of fried hay, boiled black lollies, leather, liquorice, blackcurrant, raspberry and pepper.

Tastes

A strong and structured wine, the tannins integrated with a wall of black and red fruits, the purity of which is quite striking. Juicy and long with black cherries and almond, this is a charming and character-filled red from one of the world's most famous regions. Try it with hard cheeses or slow cooked meats between now and 2024+.
