Marques de Concordia Reserva Rioja Urunuela, Rioja, Spain 2 x 75cl bottles Marqués de la Concordia belongs to a collection of premium Spanish wineries. It is a very classic style of Rioja Reserva, made with fruit grown in vineyards located in the higher altitude area of Rioja Alta. This altitude helps with an even ripening over the growing season, ensuring beautifully balanced fruit. Made with 100 % Tempranillo grapes, the wine is aged in American and French oak. Finca Manzanos Reserva Rioja Rioja, Spain 2 x 75cl bottles An outstanding wine from 4th generation of the Manzanos family, headed by Vic and David. David studied for 2 years in 2017 in Sutton Park School in Dublin, and was thrilled that wineonline.ie were to become importers of his wines in Ireland. He holds Ireland dear in his heart, and we hold this wine dear in ours! Intense, elegant with ripe fruit and undergrowth scents. You will discover  aromas of spice, cream, vanilla and cherry coming from the oak barrels used for this wine. A Gold medal winning Reserva wine at Mundis Vini in Germany as well as a Gold Medal received at the Berlin Wine trophy cements the reputation for the flagship reserva wine from the Manzanos brothers. When you try this, be sure to try other wines from the Manzanos stable too.  This wine is aged for 24 months in new and 2nd fill American oak barrels. Bodegas Navajas Reserva Rioja, Spain 2 x 75cl bottles You may not have heard of the Navajas Family. They own a not so small winery in the Western side of Rioja, in a small town called Navarette. Their cellar comprises 6,000 barrels of American oak filled red wine and the smell is intoxicating when you wander underneath the unassuming cellar. If you ever take a trip thre, Merche and family would welcome you with open arms. This is one of their flagship wines and it is a classic style Rioja, with a huge emphasis on preserving freshness of fruit and character of oak flavour in the wines as well. It is a remarkablygood wine and has been incredibly well received in some high end restaurants in Ireland since WineOnline.ie began importing these wines in 2018. Be sure to try other wines from the Navajas Bodega if you enjoy this. De Alto El Primero Rioja Y Mas Rioja, Spain 2 x 75cl bottles An unashamedly contemporary style of rioja that relies not on oak or age but on quality of fruit and a subtle, nuanced approach to winemaking. The fruit is vibrant, lifted and energetic -there are hints of wood spice, wild cherry and thyme. The palate is succulent, juicy, multi-layered but vibrant and textural. Savoury elements, hints of warm spice, liquorice and dark cherry fill the mouth, leading through to a clean, satisfying finish. This is a new style of winemaking here and it relies on freshness, moving away from the traditional, so that the fruit flavours are enhanced along the way. It is also made by Co Dublin born winemaker Fergal Tynan – Fergal is a Master of Wine and is making some of the best contemporary wines out of Rioja today. Bodegas Navajas Crianza Rioja, Spain 2 x 75cl bottles Named by Rioja Masters Magazine as one of the ‘ Top ten Riojas of 2021” This smooth, plump Rioja wins pride of place as one of our members' favourite reds vintage after vintage. We love its combination of vanilla-infused flavour from high-quality oak ageing and vibrant red-fruit notes. It also won a Gold Medal at the Rioja Masters Drinks Business awards and it is easy to see why when you taste it. It is one of the most consistent wines imported by WineOnline.ie directly, year after year.
