The grapes for this range are sourced from a 60ha estate in Rioja Alta. Here long, cold winters and warm summers with cool evenings allow gentle ripening of the grapes - producing elegant wines. A well-balanced and great value range of Rioja wines displaying ripe fruit characters balanced by juicy acidity and supple tannins. Means thunderbolt in Spanish. The contemporary label design incorporates this - with a lightening strike doubling as vine roots.
Vega del Rayo Rioja Reserva 2013
Full bodied and flavoursome Rioja Reserva. The wine is crimson in colour with a slight orange tinge towards the rim. The nose displays aromas of dark forest fruits, violets, coffee and spice. The palate has plenty of body with fine, slightly grippy tannins and plenty of fruit evident. The finish is of good length with a savoury twist to it.
