Country: Spain, Rioja
Tasting Notes: The maximum expression of terroir in Rioja and a truly special wine. It is a blend of nine different grape varieties (none of which is Viura!), fermented in a variety of vessels and aged for 18 months in old French oak. Telmo purposefully avoids talking about the specific grapes that make up the blend as a way to shift the focus from variety to the of the site’s unique expression
The nose is very complex, showing notes of butter, walnuts, quince, ginger, cedar and very ripe pears. It shows a lot of character on the palate with a nervous acidity balanced by its deep concentration and creamy, full body. The finish is very elegant and long.
Varietal: A selection of the 9 varieties authorized in Rioja
