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: Deep; dark and intense. Freshly ripped basil leaves; tomato and balsamic on the nose alongside more beefy; animal notes. The palate is full of purple fruits; red grape; damson and cooked blueberries. Beef stock continues underpinned by a minty freshness. It finishes on rich tomato and concentrated blue fruits. Fresh and perfumed to the end.
Winemaking Detail: Harvested as soon as the fruit loses any green colour, avoiding any risk of high levels of sugar and alcohol. Gentle pump overs to avoid heavy extraction. Malolactic fermentation takes place rather unusually in French oak.
