Joven (meaning ‘young’) Rioja is the preferred style among the region’s winemakers. Made for drinking in its full flush of youth, it’s unoaked to show off the vibrancy of the fresh, red berry, Tempranillo grapes. A fruity, easy going Rioja.
Martínez Bujanda has been making Riojas for over 130 years and remains one of the most innovative and influential bodegas in the appellation. The estate was founded in the late 19th century and was transformed in 1984 when the Bujanda brothers, Jesús and Carlos, built an ultra modern facility, still one of the finest in Europe. A decade later Carlos bought the single vineyard Finca Valpiedra estate, superbly situated in a bend of the Ebro River. His wines have won many top accolades. Charming Los Trinos (‘the trills’), named after the sound of the estate’s abundant birdlife, is a simple and delicious, young Rioja. It offers silky, elegant, fresh red berry flavours. In summer, it's great served cool, on its own, with chicken or tapas.
Cracking drop. We enjoyed this wine with roast lamb and rosemary. I would buy it every time"
