WE'RE NOT SURE
Tom's on a mission to make you fall in love with a different side of Rioja. And he's pulled out all the stops for his brand-new Vendimia Seleccionada.
Tom sourced Tempranillo from high-altitude grown old vines, but what makes this Rioja so special is a big dollop of Graciano, a traditionally grown grape in Rioja which is now hard to come by. The addition of Graciano makes all the difference - adding complexity and freshness
Because of the high altitude of the vineyard, Tom says "this wine is very fresh and fruty on the nose: notes of raspberry, strawberry from Tempranillo. The Graciano brings notes of blackcurrant with a balsamic, spicy touch. On the palate its very juicy and vibrant. The oak is very well balanced and integrated, nice texture and long finish." Yum.
- Angels have been crying out for more Sherry and we have got hold of an epic Pedro Ximénez.
- Overly ripe grapes are dried in the sun to get super concentrated before ageing in toasty barrels, tantalising your tastebuds with flavours of fig, raisin and plum with a lingering aftertaste of coffee and chocolate. Absolutely delicious.
- Pedro Ximénez is like liquid gold, full of sticky sweetness that feels like soft silk. Top tip, pour this over vanilla ice cream for a scintillating desert.
