This is a superb, Gold medal 2010 Reserva from one of the oldest wine regions of Spain. Vines over a century old, a dry sunny climate and stony soils produce delicious berry fruit intensity, while long ageing in cask lends a wrap of mocha toasty oak.

Valdepeñas means ‘valley of stones’ and it’s this attribute that makes it so good for fine wine. It lies in central Spain and remains, to this day, largely under the radar. That’s despite Valdepeñas being one of Spain’s oldest wine regions (granted appellation status in 1932). This silky, long flavoured Reserva comes from century old Bodegas Rasgón, where Mireia Altimira is winemaker, with our long-time friend Pamela Geddes as consultant. The grapes for this luscious eight-year-old come from some of the estate’s oldest vineyards, planted in 1904. All the fruit is slowly fermented, then put into a mix of French, US and Hungarian oak barrels. They’ve experimented to obtain just the right balance of toasty vanilla and tannins. Ideal with pork.

"Named after the 8th-century fortresses of this area, this is a silky mature Reserva. Terrific value" Beth Willard
