The Wine’s Story
50% Tempranillo and 50% Garnacha are folded together in this post-modernist Rioja version. High praise from around the globe are well deserved here, and lovers of individual wines will find a new favourite!
Stem-infused tannins, great purity and juice acidy are hallmarks in this special wine. We’re immensely proud to introduce this wine to restaurants, but in a way even more proud that Systembolaget has embraced it as well.
