Country: Spain Region: Navarra
Varietal: Tempranillo Blend
Vintage: 2012 Colour: Red Style: Dry
Producer: Finca Manzanos
Vic Manzanos has a nose for wine, and given his Rioja estate already straddles the border of Rioja and Navarra, he thought adding a very good Navarra estate would be exciting. 18 months in barrel and a full 6 years in bottle make this a real cracker!
Ageing Potential: 4 / 5 Years
Rioja without the name and price tag, made by a master of Rioja! This wine balances oaky character with fruitiness and hints of spice with a finish as lengthy as you would expect from a classic reserva.
