Overview

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

The new wine is aged in French and American oak for 12 months, destemmed and crushed, the must is fermented in stainless steel deposits at 28º C for four days, followed by a short maceration of four days.

At the heart of Rioja Alavesa, in the village of Elvillar de Álava, the Meruelo family created Bodegas Heredad de Baroja in 1964. Protected from the north by the Sierra Cantabria and thriving on the fertile Ebro Valley to the south, the region’s benign climate ensures the supply of quality grapes from top suppliers. The winery itself was built with a single purpose in mind: transforming top-quality Tempranillo grapes into classic expressions of elegant Rioja wine.
