Description

Rioja is the most famous of all Spanish wines and the Reserva designation can often provide the best value for those looking for a spicy Tempranillo hit. Reservas must be aged 3 years by law, of which at least 1 must be in oak, but this delicious Vega del Rayo goes above and beyond with 2 years in oak, effectively making it a Gran Reserva in all but name. Epic value for a stylish wine, there are very limited stocks.

Smells

Inviting nose of Christmas cake, liquorice, black cherry, vanilla, leather and warm earth, as well as cinnamon and cola.

Tastes

Silky and luxurious, with notes of dark chocolate, black cherry, plum and delicious cured meat. The tannins are well integrated and provide stoic support for the powerful fruit. Already drinking perfectly at 7 years old, this will keep another decade if you enjoy older wines.
