In Irius are proud of the wines that we can offer our clients. wines of high quality, unique . Wines that have attracted the attention of consumers and the great experts, who since our first development we have recognized with high scores and national and international awards. From the classic range, Disuperi , the high expression, and Irius Absum , all our wines remain the common denominator of excellence and distinction. These values have been highlighted by critics as famous as Robert Parker, José Andrés Peñín or Proensa and international juries International Wine Challenge, Concours Mondial Bruxelles or Decanter , to name some of the latest events in which shone above Irius holds over the long haul. One of the latest survey that has filled us with satisfaction is the first post made in Enoforum -the annual meeting of the leading wine-by Irius selection , the wine with which we opened earlier this year our highest range.

Medium lemon in color with delicate citrus, banana, mineral and raw almond aromas. In the mouth, the wine is lush and crisp, coating the entire palate with a creamy citrus wash that gently tumbles off the tongue and lingers through a long sensuous finish. The is a fabulous wine with bold and creamy peach and grapefruit flavors, literally dancing on the palate, while showing intermittent flavors of white flowers and lychee. I'm officially addicted!

50% Tempranillo, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah Dark inky red in color leading to a dense maroon red. On the nose, black cherries and black pepper immediately drift up from the glass, followed by subtle notes of charcoal, vanilla and nutmeg. In the mouth, the wine bone dry, soft and silky showing fine tannins, medium acidity and loads of vanilla. Actually, it reminds me a health shake I used to be in love with years ago, but thankfully, the flavors diminishes just enough to let the fruit show through. After awhile, this wine reminds me of cherry filled hard candy that starts delicate, but over time, becomes increasingly tart and sweet, not overwhelmingly, but enough to catch your attention. I'm hoping that time will relax both the vanilla and cherry flavors!
