Rioja (Lantziego)

'La Estrada' Single Vineyard 2015

Size

Herbal, elegant, classical and refined, red fruited with touches of anise, fennel herb and pepper. Great elegance, incredibly fine tannin and very pure Rioja-ness. Sweet, herb-saturated red cherry berry fruit, beautifully round and delicate, almost capering in the mouth with sour cherry acidity. The berries are sweet, the tannins are sweet, the acidity is sweet, and the wine, delicate, gently briary, round, energetic verging on electric, tangy and savoury and entirely not sweet, but joyously un-strict.
