Izadi Rioja Reserva 2013, Spain

Izadi Rioja Reserva 2013, Spain

RRP: £14.99
Bottle Price: £13.99

Our biggest-selling Rioja Reserva, and for good reason (it's delicious!)

All of Izadi's vineyards have traditionally-trained bush vines, a method which they believe gives better exposure of the grapes which, in turn, leads to more complete ripeness and softer, fuller wines.

The vineyards lie 600m above sea level so warm days give way to cool nights, encouraging the aromatic qualities in the grapes to develop fully.

The wine is a deep ruby in colour, with very intense aromas of red fruit and a touch of cedar. The vanilla oak perfumes integrate well with the juicy black fruit on the palate and fine, savoury tannins.

The wine has tons of fruit, a definite floral note and a rounded structure. Red fruit characters linger on the long, long finish.

90 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Jay Miller 30 June 2011:

'A glass-coating opaque purple colour, it offers up a lovely perfume of violets, spice box, incence, mineral and blackberry. Elegant as well as structured on the palate, it has the balance to evolve.'

Or as one of our customers put it, 'The best Rioja I have ever tasted outside Spain.'

And it's our favourite - bar none.
