Red - RIOJA RESERVA, Valenciso. Spain

2007 RIOJA RESERVA, Valenciso. Spain (Magnum)

Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: By far the most famous Spanish wine region, Rioja accounts for 70% of all Spanish wine shipped to the UK. With that kind of volume, inevitably there are a lot of disappointing bottles! We often struggle to find examples that really live up to everyone's high expectations
Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo, matured for one year in French oak (one third new oak)
Producer: Valenciso is an estate at Ollauri in Rioja Alta run by Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso. They make only Reserva and aim for elegance above richness
Old Bridge Rating: This is modern Rioja at its best. Not modern as in flashy, sweetly oaky and over-ripe; modern as in well balanced - combining traditional soft vanilla flavours with a clean, fresh, unusually elegant style
Press Reviews: "Classically styled. Very driven palate with sweet red fruits and prominent acidity. A lively wine with a very long finish." 96 Points, Decanter, September 2013
