New Year…New Wines…New Wave Rioja…
Paco Garcia Rioja “Seis” 2015 RRP17.99
The Rioja Seis spends 6 months maturing in French oak barrels (seis being Spanish for six).
This beautiful red showcases the fresh and fruity characters of the classic Rioja Tempranillo grape.
It displays powerful aromatics and a velvety mouthfeel.
In the glass it is a youthful blackberry and ruby red colour, clean and bright.
The nose is an aromatic explosion of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and violets.
On the palate it is round and full with lots of fresh red fruit and floral tones and just a touch of oak spice in the background. Seriously quaffable!!
Here’s to new adventures in wine in 2018!
