Artesa Rioja Reserva
This product is currently sold out.
Fans of rioja - listen up. The Artesa Rioja Reserva is class in a glass! It's a Gold Medal Winning classic Reserva from Artesa's oldest and highest vines and quite frankly, it's the work of genius. First of all, get out your extra big wine glasses... that's right, the ones you don't like using because they don't fit in the dishwasher. Trust us, this is a wine that will justify having to do the washing up. Once it's poured, give it a good swirl and prepare for stunning aromas of plums and figs that lead to full dark berry fruit flavours and just a hight of baked orange peel notes. When it hits the lips it definitely lives up to the promise with flavours of aniseed, red plums and vanilla, finishing with a hint of cigar box and charred wood. One word. Elegant. And how have they done it? Well the altitude of the vineyard, plus good levels of sunshine and ageing in French and American oak, provides the smooth and supple quality of this special wine. It's a fabulous wine to drink with lamb, roast pork, game, mushroom risotto or meat-baked pasta dishes. Take your pick!
