REY DON GARCIA RIOJA
2013 Crianza Bodegas Ruconia
|Grapes||Graciano, Tempranillo, Mazuelo|
Modern in its execution, yet with traditional values, this is a fruit led Rioja with crisp flavours and soft hints of oak. It is a remarkably good wine for the price offering far greater value and quality than many of the more famous wines from the region. The 2013 is a great vintage, packed with fruit and immensely attractive. L&S (Oct 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
We discovered this small, modern, winery in the heart of Rioja over a decade ago and we were immediately taken by the exceptional quality of the winemaking, combined with their extraordinarily attractive pricing. These have become a firm favourite and some of our best selling red wines from Spain.
Don't be a party pooper at your own party - stocking the drinks trolley with substandard hooch can only disappoint and will have your guests talking about you for all the wrong reasons. A swinging party needs good wine and good friends. Good friends we can't promise to supply (but invitations are welcome...) but good wine is definitely our thing. In this cracker of a pack you will find South African bubbles made with Méthode Traditionelle (Prosecco is so last year guys, keep up!); some of our forever popular and eminently drinkable Rey Don Garcia Rioja; a crisp clean and fresh drop of Gavi; and a few bottles of our world beating MiP* Rosé from Provence because a bit of pink always goes down well.
If you thought all Rioja was much the same - think again. From the big traditional mellow Ruconia Reserva with its long wood ageing, to the light bright and crisp elegance of Sandra Bravo's high altitude Sierra do Tolono, via the exuberant plumpness of the Joven Viña Diezmo and the restrained refreshment of the Artuke, this case encompasses so much of what is exciting and tasty about Rioja. Rioja - it may have been around for years, but it's bang up to date.
