    This wine takes its name from Alto Otero, a beautiful place where the winery is situated in the town of Labastida, north of the Iberian Peninsula. Opaque cherry red in colour, with floral and sweet red fruit aromas. Ageing for 12 months in oak barrels gives the wine delightful spicy and smoky notes. Velvety and […]

    Terrific wine. Very vivid colour, a bit darker than the 2016. Crunchy palate of blueberry, cherry, plum, cinnamon and nutmeg. Just the perfect marriage of ripe succulent fruit, drying powdery tannins and vibrant acidity. Bargain. WWC, January 2019. This is an aromatic, vital, young Rioja bursting at the seams with aromas and flavours of red […]

    A 2016 Rose, really? Yet again, I was blown away by the ‘bargain deliciousness’ from Exopto. It’s hard to imagine the volume of complexity in this Bozeto de Exopto Rose. Blood orange, grapefruit, fennel and peach fold into a juicy, pulpy, tangy and savoury spice. The bottle age on this wine has only added to […]

    This is the third vintage of this wine that I have had the pleasure to taste and drink. The 2016 and 2017 releases are awesome and entirely different from each other. It’s great to see real vintage variation in an ‘entry’ level wine. For what it’s worth, I tend to prefer the cooler vintages. The […]

    This is a wonderful introduction to Rioja wine. Classic cherry cola nose. The palate is medium bodied and wondrously soft. Plums, cherries, violets, nutmeg and cinnamon. Very ripe, soft tannins. Drinking well now, but with years ahead of it. WWC, December 2018 Laderas de Cabama is a second red wine from Valenciso, crafted from the […]

    The tiny village of Ábalos lies just a kilometre or so from the Rioja Alta’s border with Rioja Alavasa. Forming a small pocket between the River Ebro and the Basque mountains to the north, the rocky terroir of this area has more in common with nearby Alavesa – the soils are rich in limestone, the […]

    From a warmer vintage, the colour as always with Exopto, is vivid. Darker fruits on offer here, blackberry, black cherry and blackcurrant. Plush and velvet textured palate with Tempranillos give away chalky tannins. The 2016 is a more luxurious offering from Exopto with spice, sarsaparilla and chocolate notes.

    Today’s wine plays homage to the austerity of the rocky limestone soils and old vines planted in the highland limestones of Ábalos. Exopto’s white is a blend of Viura with some 10% Garnacha Blanca and the remaining 5% split between Malvasía Riojana, Jaén Blanca and Torrontés, picked predominantly from white vines that are co-planted in […]

    This is a wonderful introduction to Rioja. The 2014 Laderas de Cabama is bursting with silky red cherry, liquorice and chocolate and a touch of fine tannin on the finish. A fine, sexy Rioja and great value. “Powerful and concentrated, this has a great tannin structure that makes it seem rather young for its age. […]

    Absolute drop dead bargain. Its difficult to describe the complexity, nuance and excitement this Exopto Blanco 2017 conjures. Everytime I came back to taste the wine it had evolved into something else. Always throwing up a whole new set of flavours. It has a rich, full bodied, lanolin texture and there’s a briskness to its […]

    I have tasted the 2016 twice recently, with consistent results. Love it! The 2017 Horizonte de Exopto is a very different wine, due to the cooler nature of the vintage. If the 2016 is a broadsword, the 2017 is a rapier. With a spicy nose of red and dark cherries, I wasn’t expecting the plunge […]

    Valenciso’s Blanco is earth-to-glass white Rioja and a seriously gorgeous white Rioja to boot. It’s crafted from 80 to 100 year old vines of Viura (70%) and Garnacha Blanca (30%), sourced from four highland vineyards around Haro and Villalba. After a wild ferment, the wine is aged on lees in Russian, steam bent, untoasted oak […]

    Valenciso’s Blanco 2017 is a seriously gorgeous white wine. Super pretty and aromatic. Crushed citrus and savoury notes and a juicy, silky, tangy vibrant palate. There’s good texture too thanks to the low yields from ancient vines. The finish is salty, savoury and refreshing. The Blanco is crafted from 100+ year old vines of Viura […]

    As always, this is 100% handpicked Tempranillo from the clay/limestone soils around Haro. The grapes come from 11 plots, including Villalba, Rodezno Briones and Ollauri, all managed under strict culture raisonnée guidelines and cropped at well below the regional guidelines (of 38 hectolitres per hectare). Valenciso ferment in cement vats with native yeasts, and the […]

    2012 was a warm and dry year, when some vines were blocked and stopped ripening the grapes. Surprisingly enough, many wines have retained more freshness than what the natural conditions of the year anticipated. Valenciso’s 2012 Reserva has more stuffing and power than the 2011 and comes from a year that was saved by some […]

    El Espinal is a fascinating wine which evolved in the glass and came up with totally unexpected flavours and textures. Very dark colour and surprisingly open on the nose. The texture is of luxurious – soft and plush with plenty of laced tannins. Pastile fruits of blackcurrant, nuances of cherry cola, blueberry and licorice root. […]

    This 2007 is just the second release of Reserva 10 Años Después. This time around, the Valenciso team (Luis Valentín, Carmen Enciso and Ana Ruiz) selected a small parcel of fruit from a 75 year old vineyard in the north of Haro, which was aged in a single 50 hectolitre concrete tank for five years.

    The 2008 is just the third release of this leftfield Rioja and arguably the finest to date. Bottled in 2018, hence the name ’10 Years After’, the extended ageing in concrete results in no loss of colour and only seems to intensify the wine’s fruit purity and aromatic expression. Meanwhile the striking palate is both […]

    Macan is Bodegas Benjamin de Rothschild & Vega Sicilia’s flagship. It is elegance and depth. Its freshness and fruitiness is the result of a meticulous grape selection from the best “pagos” (vineyards) in San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Its silky tannin is a genuine result of very old vines, variety Tempranillo, along with cautious ageing […]

    Impenetrable, and one of the darkest pitch Tempranillo’s I have tasted. Dark, dark fruits, licorice and very tight. There are glimpses of morello cherries, which really lifts the wine and points to a compelling, mysterious evolution. Exotic notes kick in after you leave the wine for a few minutes. Thyme, lavender, grenadine and blood orange. […]
