Finca de la Rica

El Guia 2016

+771651| Spec |

A sneakily charming little number, bragging with a splash (10%) of Viura from 100 year old vines! Bright ruby red, with aromas of wild bush berries you grew up around, salty cold cuts on a picnic, frozen watermelon, and wide open tall grass in late August. High acidity and a touch of sprtiz (carbonic maceration) keep things light and flirty like a breezy sundress or backwards baseball cap. This begs to be served with meat charcuterie, but really, anything.

El Buscador Crianza 2015

+441899 | Spec |

Aromas of ripe cherry and violet fields with a waft of your mothers baking cupboard, filled with all the exotic spices you can’t afford, and the back porch your grandfather secretly smokes his pipe on. This is medium-bodied with dark chocolate, tobacco, black currants and raspberries with the kind of gentle tannins you call when its only Tuesday and you just can’t even anymore. Serve with hummus, olives, frozen pizza and netflix.

El Nomada Special Selection 2013

+17473 | Spec |

‘The Wanderer’ lives everyday as if it were the last. Living with its heart on its sleeve, and expressing every beat of love poured into the making of this wine. This special selection of Tempranillo and Graciano (from 100 year old vines!) has a shy bouquet of dark chocolate covered raspberries, espresso bean, blackcurrant and a peppering of cedar spice – all found on the palate. Full bodied, with vibrant tannins that make you want to quit your job for your life-long childhood dream. Serve with sunday roast,  saucy dishes,  fried fish, and date night.
