Passion for Spanish wine



Cerro Las Cuevas 2017 Tinto

Gómez Cruzado, Rioja

Grapes in the 2017 vintage were sourced from two plots in Ollauri (Rioja Alta). The wine was exclusively aged in foudres resulting in a very approachable style. Tons of concentrated fruit (ripe plums and liquor-soaked cherries) tamed by gentle but firm tannins. Definitely more expressive than previous vintages but I would still give it some time in bottle. It will be interesting to see how these modern, elegant Riojas develop in 10 years' time. 17.0 points
