2016 Corriente

BLEND | Tempranillo, Graciano & Garnacha

VINEYARDS | “Rioja Corriente” is an expression from the turn of the century, referring to a pure, unclassified wine meant for everyday drinking. Bush vines in the cool Lanciego zone within Rioja Alavesa on flat shallow soils that are stony, calcareous, and low in nutrients.

WINEMAKING | Hand picked with wild yeast primary fermentation and malolactic in concrete tank and stainless steel followed by 12 months aging in a mixed regime of barrel and foudre.


“The entry-level red from Rioja 2016 Corriente is always a sure value, but the 2016 is truly exceptional, possibly the finest vintage they have bottled to date. It’s floral and aromatic, very elegant and balanced. There are fine tannins, a chalky minerality and a supple finish. This is a great Rioja with freshness and typicity.” - Luis Gutierrez
