This fine, elegant red is a glorious blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Cabernet, all aged for 18 months in barrel. It’s closer in style to a Reserva in fact, and is from high vineyards close to Rioja. A complex red that punches above its weight.
"Five years old and with long ageing in top quality oak barrels, this tastes like a fine Reserva"
Beth Willard Buyer for Spain
Fluent in Spanish, our Buyer Beth has built long-term friendships with many top bodegas. These contacts give her the opportunity to snap up some exciting one-off wine parcels like this. Selección Numerada 39 is from a winery that has existed in Navarra for 150 years and now has extensive vineyards in Rioja too. They’re a talented team, making rich wines with layer upon layer of mellow fruit. This Crianza has been aged so long in barrel – 18 months in both French and American oak – that it is tasting more like a Reserva. Tempranillo with Cabernet and Garnacha, now with five years of maturity, this red is a real treat. Black and red berry fruit, liquorice, toasty oak and spice – you’ll find this a fine choice with roast lamb or a casserole.
