Rioja

This Rioja is from the village of Quel, and has been produced under one of the new Rioja classifications: a 'Vino de Pueblo', which can only be produced from family-owned vineyards within a named village. All are at altitudes above 600m - low yielding vines which receive no artificial irrigation. Many are plots of old bush vines. The finished wine spends 18 months in new oak barrels (80% French and 20% American) with varying levels of toast. After a further 6 months in large (18,000L) French oak foudres, the wine is stored in the cellar for 6 months before release. Black fruit backed by spice and fig. The palate is rich with brambley fruit characters, light oak flavours and nice acidity.
