Bodega Classica Rioja Montesc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a perfect introduction to the reds from Rioja - with all the silky softness you would expect from a Crianza but much juicier and with more red fruit flavour. On the palate there are lots of ripe strawberry fruit with a splash of vanilla and notes of peppermint. Local food matches would include lamb chops cooked over a BBQ of vine cuttings, roast suckling pig or small pork kebabs marinated in paprika, garlic olive oil and coriander. This type of wine is great with chargrilled red meats and vegetables and for the classic match go for rosemary roasted lamb.
