2013/4 Azabache Crianza, Bodegas Aldeanueva, Rioja, Spain
This excellent Rioja is well balanced with a soft seductive character typical of the Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo grapes. It is made to emphasise the fruit characteristics with a subtle hint of oak gained from one year in cask and allowed to mature in bottle before release. It exhibits intense plum and cherry flavours with elements of vanilla and spice and a soft rounded palate.
Tempranillo (70%) Garnacha (20%) Mazuelo (10%)
Excellent by the glass or to accompany tapas, chorizo or braised meats.
