A broad and complex palate. Full-bodied, with depth and concentration, fine tannins and a firm backbone of acidity. It is powerful and structured yet open; notes of wild bramble, herbs and spice end with a long, intense finish.
About the Winemaker
The wines of Bhilar are undeniably 'Rioja' but with a whole lot of terroirdriven, nature-loving soul. The Bhilar team aim to achieve three things in their wines: a sense of place, definitive character, and - particularly in their Single Vineyard range - provocative expression. Every one of Bhilar's wines has wonderful elegance, freshness and hints of herbal influence - think thyme, eucalyptus, nutmeg and lavender, with a big hit of Morello cherry. But it's not just their biodynamically-produced Riojas-with-a-twist that set Bhilar apart. David's commitment to sustainability extends beyond the vineyard; the cellar and winery both exclusively use solar power and are built partially underground to help control temperature.
I bought one bottle of this wine on spec on my last visit. It really is very good. If you like full-bodied Spanish reds of the Rioja or Navarra type then try this one. The taste is rich vanilla and oak and something like dark chocolate. It's also a little unusual. One would obviously expect that familiar Rioja taste but there's far more going on.
