"Ever popular when we show this at tastings there is a core of fruit in these wines that suggests a quality not always experienced in a “simple” Crianza.  This wine offers bundles of cherry red fruit with hints of spice and a cloak of oak that enhances rather than shrouds the fruit.  Due to the depth and quality of fruit in this wine you will be rewarded by decanting this wine before serving.  Perfect with Chorizo based dishes." - Mark, The Vineking West Road Manager

In 1970 Luis Cañas changed two hundred years of tradition and became the first winemaker in Rioja Alavesa to bottle his young wine rather than sell it as bulk.

This bold move, and his continued pioneering spirit, has cemented the winery's enviable reputation as one of the most progressive in the region. Sheltered below the watchful Sierra Cantabria, the vineyards are all old, small plots on chalky-clay soils with a dedicated team of vineyard workers carrying out organic practices and a purpose built, fully equipped accommodation block was built for the entire vineyard team in 2006.

An excellent modern crianza.  Ruby red colour. A clean nose with notes of balsamic and fine nuances of plum and clean oak. Intense spice and oak on layers of velvety cherry fruit and a slight hint of licquorice. Lasting rich fruit flavours with smooth round tannins. Complex and structured. A pleasant finish with red fruits and hints of eucalyptus.
