Carravacas de Primicia Reserva Rioja 2013

Rioja DOCa

This Rioja Reserva always impresses us with its seductive, rich flavours and now, with seven years' age, it's showing its complexity. It’s all hand picked Tempranillo from a special Alavesa vineyard – luscious, layered berry fruit and oaky length.

Casa Primicia is one of the oldest buildings in Rioja Alavesa – in the 15th century it was where the Church collected tithes. In 1985 the Madrid brothers bought it and converted it into a winery. A host of prestigious awards soon followed, including the ‘Grand Prix d’Honneur’ at Vinexpo in Bordeaux. Grapes for this wine come from a beautiful 40 year old vineyard and a good vintage. It was crafted by Fernando Domingo (who trained under great oenologist Don Manuel Ruiz Hernández) and aged in American and French oak barrels for 18 months, the rest in bottle, to obtain the perfect balance of subtle spice and deep fruit. A superb Rioja Reserva with red berry notes, cocoa, vanilla and toasty oak. Excellent with tapas, lamb or rice dishes.
