Vina Bujanda Rioja Crianza is consistently a customer favourite and it is not hard to see why, this is a reflection of the stunning qualities of the fabulous Tempranillo grape. It is elegant and complex with aromas of black fruit and spice from its wood ageing. It offers a wide and fresh feel in mouth, where it develops a round space of silkiness and elegance.
Aromas of blackberry and bilberry together with spicy tones (clove and cinnamon) from the American oak in which the wine spends 12 months, imparting mild tobacco and light balsamic notes. The Tempranillo variety showing its typical elegance and complexity with a long and silky finish.
Food pairings would include cheeses poultry fish and Riojas favourite culinary companion, lamb.
“This lithe red is bright and energetic. Fresh cherry and red plum flavours mingle with leafy, licorice and vanilla notes, backed by light tannins and tangerine acidity. Supple and graceful.
