Decenio Tempranillo Rioja Reserva 2014
A master of all disciplines that can really go the distance.
That could be said both of this wine and its maker Raimundo Abando. Rai used to compete in triathlons at an international standard, but now he funnels all that energy into winemaking at Bodegas Las Orcas. Located in the cooler Rioja Alavesa region, nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabrian Mountains, he creates Tempranillo with refreshing acidity, lower alcohol and summery freshness. The delicate touch his wines possess, makes them super food friendly and downright drinkable.
The Decenio Tempranillo Reserva Rioja is aged for 24 months in American oak barrels, followed by a further 16 in bottle. It’s full of potential energy, like a coiled spring, waiting to jump out into your glass when you open the bottle. Redcurrant, cherry, plum, cedar, cigar, creamy coconut and dried herbs all mingle in this smooth and delightful red. Serve this alongside anything from tapas to barbeques, goulash to pizza, or roast lamb to cassoulet.£2.66 per 100.00ml
