Bodegas Mateos Rioja 6-pack
WineSpark Price €138.45
I discovered these wines over a long (and delicious) lunch with Mateo in his winery back in 2014.
Mateo’s a quiet guy, but he came alive when talking about his super premium La Mateo range.
He explained that he takes the top 5% of his grapes, and uses up 50% of his resources on them. Which means he takes his best grapes from his best vineyards, allocates his best oak barrels, and gives them all the time they need to age to perfection.
Little did I know that 8 years later I’d have the honour of sharing them with you.
So I’ve mixed together the perfect Rioja 6-pack to give you a taste of Mateo’s best stuff. You’ll get…
- 3x La Mateo Rioja Tempranillo Vendimia 2016: The flagship - from 50 year old vines and 14 months in French and American oak, making it a classic mellow, fruity, smoky and powerful Rioja
- 2x La Mateo Rioja Parcelas Singulares 2016: Mateo’s top wine, made from three old Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuela parcels in Rioja Baja. Including some of the highest Garnacha vineyards in all of Rioja. 18 months in French oak gives it structure and silky-smoothness
- 1x La Mateo Rioja Tempranillo Blanco 2018: Most white Rioja is made from the Viura grape - and tends to taste quite oaky and flat. Mateo wanted something fresher and punchier, so he planted an experimental vineyard of white Tempranillo 15 years ago - making it the oldest white Tempranillo vineyard in Rioja! If you like white Burgundy, such as Macon, you’ll love this
I first met Mateo through my great friend Carlos Rodriguez back in 2014. We called into his winery near Logrono for a ‘quick Sunday lunch’ - I finally got out of there several hours later and barely able to move or fit back in my piddly rented Seat Ibiza.

We opened the Vendimia at a lovely Moroccan restaurant in city centre and paired well with the Tagine ...everyone enjoyed the rich cherry fruit flavours and gets better in the glass (if it lasts that long) thanks Eamon for introducing this great wine to Winespark
