Bodegas Ondarre, Rioja Reserva, Mainland Spain, Spain, 2014
Platinum: Best Red Rioja Reserva
85% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo, 10% Graciano
A first-rate example with a bevy of fleshy red fruit flavours of strawberry, cherry, and plum accompanied by spice, a lovely lick of vanilla-peppery oak, and exemplary tannins, which are sufficient for extended cellaring. A benchmark example - fine, supple and harmonious. An excellent wine for gastronomy.
