Rioja Garnacha Crianza DO, Navarrsotillo

£11.99

Rather unusually for a Rioja this wine is not made with any Tempranillo grapes but instead is a ‘single variety’ Crianza using only the vineyard’s best Garnacha (Grenache). It’s easy to see why this perfectly poised red won a Gold Medal at Mundus Vini in 2016; with its warm berry flavours and soft tannins it’s certainly become a firm favourite in this writer’s house.

Bodegas Navasotillo

A family-run estate located in Calahorra and founded in 1995 by brothers Andrés and Ramón Serrano. Theirs was the first organic Rioja we bought – a type of wine we’d been awaiting for some years as Spain was relatively slow to embrace organic viticulture. In 1998 a new state of the art winery was built with a cellar for over 500 French and American oak barrels. Third brother Luis is their charming and energetic export manager.
Vineyard size 90 hectares. Organic since 1997.
