Milenrama Rioja Joven Tempranillo 2016
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Milenrama (Spanish for “yarrow”, a flower prevalent in Rioja and handsomely featured on the label) is a value-oriented project in Rioja from up-and-coming female winemaker Ruth de Andrés. She has degrees in both chemistry and oenology in three different countries, experience at top firms in Bordeaux and the Penedès, sommelier-course teaching, and, most recently, winemaking for export markets. The goal? Perhaps her own words are best– vinos buenos, bonitos y baratos — good, honest, inexpensive everyday wine. The Milenrama Rioja range features a juicy, clean, unoaked joven Tempranillo for bistros and bottle shops alike, as well as crianza and reserva bottlings which are standout values at their respective price points.
Made of 100% Tempranillo from vineyards averaging 40 years, grown on gravel over clay-limestone at altitudes of 300-500m. Harvesting is done by hand and fermentation is performed in concrete and stainless steel for a clean, healthy, pure flavor of the grape.
