Review

A reinterpretation of a classic. A fragrant, complex, silky wine made from Tempranillo grapes grown on vines over 30 years old, with 24 months spent in barrel and rounded off over a period of more than four years in bottle.

NOTE: It is recommended to open the bottle and decant the wine between 15 and 30 minutes before drinking.

Matured for 24 months in new (25%) and semi-new (75%) 225-litre American oak barrels, and subsequently for a further 4 years in barrel.

A really special Rioja.

A super Rioja that never disappoints. A definite 'special occasions' wine (family and friends gatherings) that can be placed on the table with 100% confidence.

The Eguren family has historical connections with wine-making dating back to 1870 and now five generations have been intrinsically involved with vine cultivation in La Rioja. Expert knowledge has been accrued then passed on, with technological advances in production warmly accepted but without totally superseding traditional ideas that are based on an overriding respect for the soil and the vine.
