Lopez de Haro Blanco 2021 (1 bottle)

Our Rioja Case Offer opens with a classic white Rioja with aromas of pears and a hint of honeyed oak. The flavours combine greengage, melon, pear with just a hint of vanilla and butter notes; it finish with a light citrus uplift. A well-balanced, dry white wine which is rounded and fresh. 3 months ageing in French oak barrels.

Medievo Tempranillo Roble 2021  (1 bottle)

An attractive young red Rioja made from 100% Tempranillo with aromas and flavours of red and black berry fruits, velvety tannins, hints of liquorice, balsam and spicy notes. This is a fruity and well-balanced, perfect “anyday”, red Rioja. It has a touch of structure which also makes it a good food wine. It has spent 4 months in 70% American and 30% French oak barrels. From Bodegas del Medievo, an exciting and innovative small winery South of Logroño, who are producing modern, fruity Riojas.

Gatito Loco 2021 (Organic) (1 bottle)

With its eye-catching label (Spanish for crazy kitten) this juicy red is bursting with fruit. This is a young, yet full-flavoured Rioja that is strikingly different. Recommended by Decanter Magazine as having “lively fruit flavours, ripe and full, yet composed and stylish.”  It has Blackberry and red fruit flavours with supporting nuances of balsam, liquorice and chocolate. An un-oaked Rioja that stands out for its combination of full flavours and freshness.

Bodegas Olarra Cerro Añon Crianza 2020 (1 bottle)

90 Points Tim Atkin MW Special Rioja Report 2021

Inviting aromas of blackberry, cherry and spice with vanilla hints, this is a classic Rioja. It has textured raspberry/red fruits with a touch of black fruit and spice. It has a nice structure and freshness. It is made from grapes from 20 year old vines in the Rioja Alta and Alavesa areas and aged in mostly American oak barriques, with 20% use of French oak for 14 months. We were pleased to see Tim Atkin MW review of this vintage.

“Olarra’s super reliable Crianza… is always worth seeking out, it pairs Tempranillo with 15% Mazuelo and Graciano. Aged in American and 20% French oak. It is fresh, scentted and textured, with racy red cherry and raspberry fruit and a patina of vanilla spice. 90 Points. Drink 2021 – 2025.” Tim Atkin MW Special Rioja Report 2021

Bodegas Urbina Crianza 2012 (1 bottle)

Luis Cañas Crianza 2020 (1 bottle)

Rich blackcurrant and raspberry aromas with hints of balsam and a touch of creamy oak. This leads you into its concentrated, structured black fruit palate which is complex and savoury. It has finesse, excellent balance and length. A complex and appealing Crianza, that is more like a Reserva in style and quality. From a top Rioja family-run producer in Rioja Alavesa. A delicious, modern and elegant Rioja which is great all year round.

“Balanced, modern and appealing, with a well-judged combination of French and American oak and bright red berry fruit.” Tim Atkin MW
