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 2015 Corriente is a Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano blend, from purchased and estate grapes from the village of Lanciego, fermented with indigenous yeasts in a mixture of concrete and stainless steel vats. The wine matured in barriques and oak foudres of different ages. It was bottled in April 2017. This is a creamy and spicy entry-level Rioja, combining fruit, spicy oak and some dusty tannins. This would welcome some food.” - Luis Gutierrez
