Valenciso Blanco 2018

Complex aromas combining floral characters with preserved lemon and gently smoky notes. The palate is intense and broad with nuts, stone fruit, minerality and balancing citrus acidity on the finish. Will continue to develop in the bottle.

Montecillo Edicion Limitada 2013

Lifted aromas of vanilla, violet and black fruits dominate. At first it appears a little boisterous and bold with a lovely balance between candied fruit, vanilla and other spices from the oak and background acidity. give a little time in the glass and the wine reveals an understated, elegant side too.

Valenciso Reserva 2012

Savoury aromas alongside lifted, perfumed notes of violet and blackberry. This wine shows all the elegance of the variety - tight and concentrated with spice, fine tannins, great complexity and purity. A fine accompaniment to meats or strong cheeses.

Urbina Seleccion 1999

A complex and concentrated nose of damson and summer pudding giving way to notes of vanilla, coffee and toasted almonds. With age the palate has become mellow and smooth with layers of dried fruit flavours and hints of coconut and fig. The finish is lingering and elegant. 

Urbina Gran Reserva Especial 1994

Medium ruby coloured with a lovely bouquet of cherry blossom, earth notes, spice box, leather, black cherry, and plum. On the palate it is multifaceted, elegant, concentrated, impeccably balanced, and holding strong. It should drink nicely for another 10-15 years if not longer.

Montecillo Gran Reserva 22 Barricas 2011

Fairly subtle toasty oak, clove and black tea give a doff of the hat to the region's oak ageing heritage. The palate is super-seductive, acidity gives it drive and persistence and the tannins are perfectly polished. One of Rioja's very best Gran Reservas and limited to just over 6,000 bottles.
