Vaza Tempranillo2015 VAZA Tempranillo

Formerly known as Vaza Cosecha

The Grape

Stretching 75 miles along the Ebro River in northern Spain, Rioja is divided into three growing regions. The higher altitude regions to the north, Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa, have moderate weather and a fair amount of moisture, while Rioja Baja to the east experiences hot, dry weather. Most of the wines comprise a blend of the zones, and exhibit both fully ripe fruit alongside elegance and balance.

The Blend

100% Tempranillo

Tasting Notes

Medium intensity in colour with still some touches of violet. Deep fruity aromas, principally of red fruits, raspberry and strawberry, typical of the characteristic of Tempranillos of the Rioja Alavesa region.

On the palate it is fresh an light, with soft, pleasant, approachable tannins making it a pleasure to drink. The finish is dominated by fresh fruit flavours.

Food Affinities

Rice dishes, pasta Bolognese, salads, most tapas and aperitifs, mild cheeses and cooked meats.

"The tart cherry and leafy flavors are fresh and vibrant in this supple, racy red. Smoke and licorice notes add interest. Light and fresh."

FEATURED - 2012 Vintage
"This young Tempranillo is very fruity and fresh, providing pure red berries on an easy drinking palate. Could be served lightly chilled to accompany a hot summer day's lunch."
