‘Joven’ wines are made for drinking – not keeping!  This ‘young’ wine is from a small family run bodega, and is full of juicy raspberry and black cherry fruit with lovely vanilla and sweet coconut aromas and flavours.

 

Bodegas Ondarre 'Rivallana' Crianza 2014, DOC Rioja, 13.5% [Vegan]

 

£9.95/75cl

 

A full-flavoured Crianza with ripe red plum and cherry aromas, enrobed in spicy, sweet vanilla notes.  

Flavours of dried herbs and strawberries carry through onto a long warm finish. 

 

Bodegas Ondarre Reserva 2014, DOC Rioja, 13.5% [Vegan]

 

£12.95/75cl  

 

16 months of aging in both French and American oak barrels has resulted in a complex and powerful blend, with classic spicy red fruit characters and an elegant minerality.  

 

Ramón Bilbao Viñedos de Altura Crianza 2014, DOC Rioja, 13.5% [Vegan]

 

£12.50/75cl

 

Named after the high altitude vineyards where the grapes are grown, this limited edition Rioja Crianza is full-flavoured and complex with lovely ripe raspberry and blackcurrant fruit and inviting spicy aromas.  It is fresher and softer than you would normally expect a Crianza wine to be, with round textured tannins and a hint of smokiness on the finish.

 

 

Viña Ijalba Graciano, DOC Rioja, 2015, Spain, 14% [Organic & Vegan]

 

£15.75/75cl

 

A rare blend of 100% Graciano from Rioja that is something of a paradox!  Full-bodied and powerful, yet deliciously fragrant and full of elegance.  Bursting with bright fruit laced with earthy wild herbs and sweet coconut oak.  

 

 

Muga Reserva 2013, Rioja DOC, 14%

 

£17.95/75cl

 

From one of Spain's most famous bodegas, this is a rich yet balanced Rioja Reserva with ripe dark berry fruit and sweet spicy cinnamon overlaid with smoky oak, vanilla and coffee notes. An elegant acidity carries the multiple layers of flavour through onto a long persistent finish.
