This wine is made from three old Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuela parcels in Rioja Baja. Including some of the highest Garnacha vineyards in all of Rioja. They are small plots, low yielding and totally uncommercial.

But every winemaker likes to show off their best fruit and this is one of those wines for Mateo. It’s dark and powerful from the Tempranillo… the Garnacha really brings out a lush sweet strawberry fruit character, and 18 months in French oak gives it structure and silky-smoothness.

To get the best out of this wine, Mateo recommends decanting for 45 minutes before serving. Or grab your biggest wine glasses and enjoy every moment.

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.
