El Pison Artadi Rioja Bottle 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: The El Pison vineyard has a pleasing aura of tranquillity, its setting a modest<br/>natural amphitheatre, its vines embellished by bright flowers at the end of<br/>each row. A relatively light top-soil soon gives way to rock, which descends<br/>for up to 1.5 metres, defying the vines' roots to dig deep and providing<br/>natural humidity and in-built temperature control. The 1945 vines yield a nose<br/>that is both ethereal and richly evocative, and a palate which, even in youth,<br/>is harmonious and finely balanced. Spicy and firm on the finish, this is surely<br/>one of the finest statements of Tempranillo that one is ever likely to<br/>find. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
