2012 La Vendimia Rioja

Sourced from Palacios Remondos vineyards, some of the highest in the Rioja region, this blend of Grenache and Tempranillo is wonderfully drinkable and very food friendly. This wine has spent less than six months on oak, and is therefore termed a jovenes by the Spanish.

A delicate savory nose with notes of rasperry jam, cherry and lavender, along silky soft tannins and low acidity, make this a very nice drink now wine. I served this with manchego, chorizo and boar salami and it was a treat.

An all round enjoyable Rioja, drinking well now, and best served with food.
