From the revered Ramon Bilbao this wine offers the very best value for money due to its superb quality. Boasting aromas of fresh dark fruit, such as blackberries and blackcurrants with hints of blackberry, there is real elegance to the bouquet. In the glass it is ruby red with some signs of youthfulness in the form of violet hues. On the palate it has great structure, with a ripe fruit character full of wonderful dark fruit flavours.

TEMPRANILLO - Tempranillo is the basis of the finest red wines from Spain and Portugal but has also been successfully adopted in the New World. Deep in colour with moderate tannins, tempranillo offers a wide range of aromas and flavours ranging from strawberries, blackcurrants and cherries in younger wines from cooler regions, to prunes, chocolate and tobacco in aged wines from warmer climes.
BODEGAS RAMÓN BILBAO was founded in 1924 by Ramón Bilbao Murga in Haro. He was an experienced wine trader and a pioneer in the art of ageing. The winery stayed family owned until 1966, when Ramón Bilbao Pozo, last of the descendants, died. In 1999 the winery changed hands and was completely renovated, with new facilities installed along with a commitment to making top-quality wines that reflect innovation as well as the traditions of la Rioja Alta. Today, Ramón Bilbao produces fruit driven styles as well as oaky wines, coming from the best estates and vineyards and with oak barrels from the best European and American forests. In 2014 Ramón Bilbao was awarded the Best Spanish Winery prize in by the IWSC.
RIOJA, SPAIN - Arguably Spain's top wine region, Rioja is home to bright, berry-scented, barrel-aged red wines made from Tempranillo and Garnacha. Located in northern Spain, Rioja is bordered by the Cantabrian Mountains whose shelter provides relatively warm, dry conditions. Soils vary from place to place, with the finest containing high levels of limestone, and Graciano and Carignan are also prevalent in the region’s reds, the best of which are matured in new oak barrels. Rioja blanco is also now developing into a successful white wine variety.
