Rioja is arguably the best known wine region the world, and especially in the UK where year on year we buy about a third of their total global export. The c.600 winery-strong region, set across the communities of La Rioja, Navarre, and the Basque province of Álava is the spiritual home of Tempranillo. At c.140km from the North coast it benefits from a real continental climate. Moderated by the Cantabiran mountains to the north the best sites, at 400-800m, are in the subregions of Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. Whites are made from Viura but these days Rioja is over 85% red. Oak aging (and choice of oak) plays a huge role, with wines made Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva all having their own distinctive styles and fans.

Vinedos Ruiz Jimenez the result of a dream come true when in 1998, Francisco Ruiz, decided to build his own winery to use the grapes he was growing, instead of selling them. All the vineyards are organically farmed in the small village of Aldeanueva de Ebro in Rioja. The idea was to offer the best quality, most terroir expressive wines that the land has to offer using only organic and sustainable parameters. This was quite a rare idea in Rioja back in 1998 but he knew that organic and biodynamic was the only way to give quality and terroir to the wines. Today they are the only organic and Demeter certified winery in Rioja.

Tasting note: Waxy yellow apple nose; yellow plum and a slightly aromatic; green; minty nose. With a real perfumed intensity; it is immediately creamy; rich and juicy. Bold flavours of white grape; ripe Galia melon and yellow apples followed by sultanas; almond and nougat. The finish is fresh and long; juicy and complex.
Winemaking Detail: Grapes are manually harvest in individual 10kg containers and taken to the winery as quickly as possible. Grapes for this wine are harvested in 2 mornings. Whole bunch pressed and passed straight to French oak. A vigorous fermentation starts after about 2 days, overflowing from the barrel, with a refill from another barrel every day. Once the fermentation is finished, it’s transferred to stainless steel tanks to eliminate any large sediment, before it’s returned to the barrel for further ageing. After 3 months it's transferred to stainless steel tanks to settle. Bottled after a gentle filtration.
