Gomez Cruzado Rioja Crianza (6 Bottle Case)

Tax included.

A classic and approachable style of Rioja from this well-regarded bodega.

The Tempranillo grapes are sourced from vineyards planted in the foothills of the Cantabrian mountains, and from the lower course of the Najerilla river (near Uruñuela and Torremontalbo). The Garnacha vines are planted near the higher course of the Najerilla (near Badarán). Soil types are a combination of alluvial, sandstone-clay and ferrous-clay. The grapes are handpicked into 200kg crates and sorted by hand at the winery. After 3 days of pre-fermentative maceration at low temperature, the must undergoes daily remontage and delestage during temperature-controlled fermentation in cone-shaped stainless steel tanks. This is followed by 12 months maturation in, mostly new, American oak barriques.

Gomez Cruzado Rioja Crianza has plum and bramble aromas with savoury, lightly spicy hints. An approachable, warm and gentle crianza with dark fruits and supple tannins - and more toasty, savoury hints developing on the long finish.

Pair with authentic kebabs or lamb chops with Parmenter potatoes.

Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.
