Quick Facts

Truly unique wine from Spain's most famous wine region. This 50/50 blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha, aged in neutral oak is fruity, racy and finishes with great grip, thanks to plenty of stems in the fermentation tanks.

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.
