There's no doubt that Rioja is the most important wine producing region in Spain. It's exceptionally well known for producing reds and for many Tempranillo is king, but there is so much more to discover!!
Rioja may also be prized for blending different grape varieties, but for wine lovers near and far, some of the most pleasurable moments are usually derived from single-varietal wines. Here's your chance to discover some of the best single-varietal Rioja wines that have really impressed us recently and pay tribute to their indigenous grape varieties.

The Wines In The Case Representing The Grapes Are

Viura - 2 x Cornelio Dinastia Barrel Fermented White
So good there's 2 of this!! Viura is the main white grape grown in Rioja and is prized for producing fruity wines with floral aromas and a remarkable acidity, making it ideal for both young and aged whites. The grapes for this Barrel fermented white came from the best clusters from vines that are over 60 years old and were fermented in new American oak barrels for about 8 months. The result is a multi award-winning smooth, voluptuous wine of fine aromas, with a complex and sweeping palate.

Tempranillo - 1 x Vega Vella Tempranillo
Considered native to Rioja, Tempranillo is one of the greatest grape varieties in the world and it occupies more than 75% of the vineyards in the region. It is durable and has an array of different styles. From soft and fruity to big and bold it has a style to suit anyone's palate. This Vega Vella Tempranillo has a very notable presence of red fruits, balanced out by good levels of acidity and freshness. It's smooth, dry, and well rounded.


Graciano - 1 x Vega Vella Graciano
Graciano is a grape variety native to Rioja and but occupies only 2.1% of the vineyards in the region, it is not widely grown anywhere else. It's not an easy grape to grow and usually plays a supporting role. It's an amazing variety, with balsamic, menthol notes and hints of tea, plenty to get your teeth into. This is an example of textbook Graciano, a powerful wine with noticeable tannins, where you appreciate the oak and the ripe fruit and spicy touches. Its Gold Decanter Medal vouches for that!!



Garnacha Tinta - 1 x Vega Vella Grenacha Tinta

This may be native to Spain but it is also one of the most extensively grown varietals in the world. It's usually used to make good wines great and in Rioja it's used to complement the Tempranillo with it's aromas of freshness. It generally produces aromatic wines that are not very intense in colour but have a high alcohol content and good acidity. This wine will dazzle you with it's delicate yet vibrant red-brick colour, it's fruity aromas, delicate midpalate and a long velvety finish. It represents the authenticity of the garnacha grape from decades ago.

Maturana Tinta -1 x Baron De Ley Varietal Maturana
The comeback kid so to speak. Maturana Tinta is a grape variety indigenous to Rioja which is not grown anywhere else in the world. It almost became extinct but was recovered after years of work and research but still only occupies 0.3% of the vineyards. A hidden gem, a grape of surprising elegance! This wine has all the typical characteristics of the grape, it's deep purple in colour, Spicy fruit on the nose, with the presence of balsamic notes. Warm, with silky, velvety tannins, perfectly well integrated. Full-bodied and elegant with a persistent finish.
