Cair Seleccion 'La Aquilera'
This product is currently sold out.
The name Cair is an amalgamation of the first two letters of two great friends’ surnames, Juan Luis Cañas and Juan José Iribecampos.
After searching high and low for the perfect site they settled on the heights of Ribera del Duero, where in poor soils they found old, gnarly Tempranillo bush vines. Cair wines display the hallmark style of finesse and power, found in both Luis Canas and Bodegas Amaren in Rioja. Great balance between the fruit and the oak has seen these wines winning the IWC Ribera del Duero Trophy on occasion.
Harvested from 45 year old vines from the sandy loam clay soils near La Aguilera.
A black cherry coloured wine, the nose is intensely perfumed with fine wood, leather, cigar box, dark chocolate and fruits. Full and powerful in the mouth, the sweet tannins and fruit are in perfect balance and leave a long finish.
Great with tapas dishes, grilled red meat and hard cheeses.
