Vina Zaco Tempranillo Rioja
This product is currently sold out.
With brightly fruited Tempranillo from Rioja, this has more than Rioja’s usual fruit character of red and black cherries and plums. In addition to the mint and herbs that usually derive from Rioja, as well as its dusty rock notes, there is a lush and vibrant fruit salad greatly comprised of red and black raspberries and fresh and dried strawberries.
Viña Zaco derives its name from one of the oldest vineyards affiliated with Bodegas Bilbaínas, which located in the Estacion de Haro district of Spain, the most prestigious enclave of Rioja Alta wineries. Bodegas Bilbaínas wines are recognized as wines of exceptional intensity and concentration. The Viña Zaco vineyard, located less than a mile away from the winery, is set in a unique and natural surrounding where the Atlantic and continental climates produce the perfect conditions for growing Tempranillo. This unique climate, combined with the lime- and clay-filled gravelly soils known as “cascajo,” create Rioja’s defining expression of Tempranillo.
Viña Zaco is the new-world expression of an old-world favorite with bright fruit flavors, notes of liquorice, and faint undertones of spice. The wine derives its distinctive personality and fresh varietal traits from the fruit-laden Tempranillo grape; Viña Zaco is the ultimate Rioja with a contemporary twist.
