Rioja: Marqués de Zearra Gran Reserva

£22.50

Distinctively oaky Gran Reserva Rioja from the Very Good 2012 vintage

In the early 1980s Iñake Petralanda Uria Zearra was finding it difficult to find a reliable source of good wines for his restaurant in Bilbao, so he decided to make his own. Establishing a winery in his wife’s home town of Fuenmajor in the heart of Rioja Alta in 1983, he hasn’t looked back and now runs a thriving bodega.

Fermented in stainless steel for one week and left for a further week on the lees for colour extraction, the wine is aged for 2 years in French and American oak barrels and filtered before bottling, where it lies for a further five years prior to release. Perfumed and spicy with multi-layered flavours of mocca and black cherries, worth decanting.
