The wines you want, when you want them

Summer Is Here - Let's Crack Open The Riojas

Our super range of Riojas from Bodegas Santalba have always been popular and, as in Spain, is amongst our top choice of wines for the warmer weather.  We have three of them, from the Vina Hermosa range, on special offer and also introducing an organic Rioja - very exciting and a wonderful wine.

Santalba, the bodegas name, is a fusion of the first name and surname of it's owner and founder Santiaga Ijalba.
 
Santiaga and children Roberto and Laura run their vineyard and winery in the village of Gimileo, 4 kilometres from Haro, the wine capital of the Rioja region.
 
With the family's experience, knowledge and passion passed down from previous generations, along with the finest grapes, these are fine examples of the art of Rioja wine making.
 

Please do try them.

 

2018 Vina Hermosa Rioja Blanco

This beautiful dry white wine is made entirely from the Viura grape, indigenous to the Rioja region.
 
It is very pale in colour with intense and bright hues.  The wine has a very fruity aroma with citrus overtones, is well structured with a dry and long finish.
 
One glass is never enough.
 
Try with seafood, tapas (obviously) and Asian dishes.  This time of year a superb match with English asparagus,

2017 Vina Hermosa Rioja Rosado

This refreshing Rosado is made using the Tempranillo grape.
 
A very pale pink Rose wine but with quite subtle raspberry flavours along with hints of strawberry and violets, ending with a fruity but cool and dry finish.
 
A good match with shellfish, salads, pizza and pasta.
 
Or simply just enjoy in the sunshine by itself.

2016 Vina Hermosa Rioja Tinto

The red is made with purely Tempranillo grapes from the vineyards in Haro, picked at the best moments for freshness, acidity and full flavour, the wine undergoes fermentation in stainless-steel tanks and is unoaked.
 
It has a rich red colour with blackish tones, indicative of its youth, with a tawny rim.
 
This is an aromatic, fruity, fresh and soft wine, packed with dark berry flavours and just a hint of vanilla.
 
Drink with barbeques and enjoy with most meat and cheese dishes.

2018 Vina Hermosa Natural Rioja Tinto

Made from Tempranillo grapes coming from Vina Hermosa's organic vineyards, using natural growing techniques, obtaining ecological and organic grapes high in natural anti-oxidents.
 
The wine has a deep red colour and a powerful nose laden with black fruit, ripe plums, floral notes with background hints of caramalised toffee and liquorice.  Intense, full bodied, fruity but with rounded tannins, powerful with a long finish.
 
Perfect with all grilled and roasted meats, duck and game - perhaps a wedge of Stilton too.
