Food Pairings for Bodegas Guelbenzu Ribera del Queiles Vierlas
The wine is predominantly Syrah with a complement of Merlot and Graciano, It has been aged for 6 months in French and American oak barrels.
Crafted from a chunk of Syrah; Merlot and Tempranillo; and little flecks of Graciano, Garnacha, and Cabernet, the wine is as interesting as the blend might suggest. In skillful hands, the parts have come together rather seamlessly and with excellent focus, expressing blueberries, raisins, tarragon, vanilla, toast, and ripe and cooked plums. The overall impression is of a bright and delightful wine.
