Top Notes For
Will Stanley

Very supple tannins, but good acidity

Classic Lopez de Heredia profile, v recognisable

Nose - classic bouquet of woodsmoke, blood orange, dried cherry, aged meat, and a very faint hint of sweet vanilla.

Palate - medium bodied, immediately hit with a burst of blood orange, cherry, the hallmark of these wines. Rich, but very precise, with firm acidity and dusty tannins. Very savoury, with tangy acidity and a pleasing finish.

Drinking very well now but will age. I adore this style of rioja.

Silky, lusciously earth driven, but with developed and ripe red fruit character. All the woodsy notes you could want with Rioja, but the elegance of Burgundy (as intended).
