Castillo Viento Rioja Joven Tinto 2008

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 modernise 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.This red Rioja wine is a juicy, easy-going Rioja with a gently perfumed nose and a soft underbelly of raspberry, strawberry & red cherry fruit flavours on the palate. It is a deliciously uncomplicated version of a old world classic.
