Castillo D Clavijo Rioja Reserva 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Bodegas Criadores de Rioja typifies twenty-first century Rioja in its careful balancing of tradition and innovation. The winery was established in 2000 with a view to modernising the production of Rioja wines whilst working with the scores of small, local growers to make wines that reflect the quality and history of Rioja. Under the careful eye of young winemaker Paloma Redondo, the winery is a palace of stainless steel - with oak barrels being used sparingly - but the wines themselves are true to the region, and eschew the vogue for an 'international style'.This Rioja Reserva is aged for up to 24 months in French and American oak casks to give this wine real complexity, with ripe, mature fruit, lots of spice and vanilla oak flavours.
