Sela Rioja & Aubocasa Extra Virgin Olive Oil Gift Box
In a recent article, the highly respected wine magazine Noble Rot advised its readers to take olive oil to a dinner party rather than wine, to avoid anyone feeling uncomfortable if the wine isn’t a perfect match to the food or the host has already chosen a wine list. However, we have an even better idea. Why not take both?
Officially the perfect gift to ingratiate yourself anywhere you take it, this gift box contains a bottle of Roda’s phenomenal Sela Rioja and a bottle of their exquisite Aubocassa Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Majorca.
Everything Bodegas Roda produce is awesome but we particularly love Sela – their thrillingly youthful expression from sustainably farmed vineyards. It’s a modern Rioja for a younger generation who are less interested in drinking something with the fusty gravitas of a stately home library.
Fresh berry fruit, rolling tobacco, Mediterranean herbs, dried flowers and a pinch of smoked pepper; this Tempranillo, Grenache and Graciano spends twelve months in oak, so does not lose its wonderful vibrancy and nervy energy. As wine critic James Suckling put it, this is a wine that’s “hitting above its fighting weight”.
With fine wine pedigree and complexity, Aubocassa Extra Virgin Olive Oil is gently pressed from Arbequina olives and expresses intense lemon, kaffir lime leaf, raw almond, kale, green apple, white peach, crunchy pear, artichoke, green tomato, kiwi and gunpowder notes. Drizzle this over food as a finishing flourish or simply dip freshly baked bread into it.
Founded in the late 1980s, Roda is a new breed of Rioja producer, one that has carried out meticulous scientific research to find the finest plots on which to create wine or olive oil.£8 per 100.00ml
