Viña Ijalba were the first estate in La Rioja to go organic and in the last decade or so they have built a loyal fan base. This top-selling Rioja is made from 100% Tempranillo. Its popularity in no doubt due to the beguiling raspberry jam character which has no rough edges. Velvety smooth from start to finish. Serve with supper any day of the week; you'll never tire of its charms.
Decanter magazine March 2020 issue - Sarah Jane Evans MW, Simon Field MW - 'Beaming with juicy red fruit, sappy and youthful with soft, creamy oak'.
About the estate
Viña Ijalba currently has more than 90 hectares of vineyards spread over several terrains around Logroño, San Vincente de la Sonsierra and the Najerilla Valley. 70% is harvested by hand. Ijalba is also very much involved in restoring native, almost forgotten grape varieties to Rioja - varieties that bring a distinctive element to their wines.
