CARINENA

Located in the Ebro Valley hovering a little further south-east than Rioja and Navarra, the DO of Cariñena is planted with around 16,000 hectares of vines, distributed amongst approximately 2,000 growers. The continental climate and extremes of temperature from daytime to nighttime play a significant role in the characteristic intensity of the wines from Cariñena. The most widely planted grape is Garnacha Tinta (aka Grenache), which thrives on the limestone and rock soils and, having undergone rapid development throughout the 1990s, many wines now have much greater balance and refinement than has previously been associated with area.

TASTING NOTES

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. Outstandingly intense aromas, with hints of stone fruit (peaches), white fruit (pears and ripe apples) and quince, in addition to a remarkable lemon leaf citrus background. A flavoursome mouth is accompanied by an enjoyable breadth and freshness, together with a very well-integrated acidity. Very persistent, fruit-forward finish. Perfect to enjoy with any appetiser....

TASTING NOTES

A vivid mid-ruby, dried rose petal and balsamic scented reserva, still showing vibrant raspberry fruit and fresh acid. Chocolate-coated cherry character with hints of vanilla, but in a far more restrained way than in classic Rioja wines. Superb structure with ripe, fine-grained tannins and a tar-like grip towards the end of the long finish. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will age well...

TASTING NOTES

Another cracker was the Aster, Finca El Otero 2014 from Burgos, the central chunk of Ribera where most of the best wines comes from. This big wine (14.5% above but well-balanced) was notably complex with well-meshed tannins and a long finish. Clearly, it will age well.Geoffrey Dean, The Buyer
