Producer: MARTÍNEZ LACUESTA
This is a modern wine from a very historic producer. Bodegas Martinez Lacuesta have been making wine since the late 1800s, 3 generations of the Lacuesta family have made the wine during this period. They are based in Haro in the Rioja Alta, the originator, Felix Martinez Lacuesta also represented producers in the set up of the Regulatory Body of the Rioja DO. They were a pioneering force in exporting Rioja wines, in the early 1900s, paving the way for others.
Tasting Notes: A pale yellow-green colour with delicate golden hues resulting from its ageing in wood casks. In the nose there is a perfect integration of the subtle fragrances from the different woods over a honeyed background of fresh fruit. On the palate it has a fresh, creamy entrance, with a pleasantly delicate hint of oak which ensures a complex finish. This is a wine that can be drunk now or laid down for some years to further increase its depth and complexity.
