Viña Ijalba - 2017/18
Rioja is known for producing some of the best Spanish wine, and this 2012 Viña Ijalba is a classic example of Spanish quality and care. The wine is made from Graciano grapes, which account for just 0.04% of the total grapes planted in the region. Graciano grapes are famous for the deep, aromatic wines they produce, with strong hints of spices and long length. On first sip, you’ll detect hints of quinces and herby fruits, making this an attractive vintage. As you delve deeper, you’ll notice floral aromas, a full body, and notes of sage that provide an elegant, full-bodied feel. Best of all, it’s organic!
