The Grays Wine team are always on the lookout for your next wine discovery. Spain is no exception and we thought we’d start with Rioja. The Rioja wine region can be described as 'Spain in a glass'.
Rioja is made from Tempranillo grapes or a blend of varieties (with Tempranillo the dominant grape). Tempranillo is known for its structure and tannins. This is a wine perfect for a drinker who loves Cabernet but is also looking for the dominant cherry flavor that’s often present in a wine like Pinot Noir. The Spaniards are very proud of the indigenous Tempranillo grape because they have been making it into wine for over 2,000 years.
Transport yourself to Rioja with a glass of these Grays exclusive wines and some lovely thin slices of Jamon Serrano (the Spanish version of Prosciutto) and chunks of Manchego cheese. Yum! Simon – GraysWine Buyer
