Bodegas Rosario Vera ‘Honoro Vera’ Rioja 2016

Primitivo from Spain
Review Date : 27-Sep-2017
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim and youthful in appearance. The nose is firmly concentrated with fragrant and aromatic dark raspberry fruit along with boysenberry notes and whole berry fermentation jam, confectionary and red floral notes. The fruit is primary and vibrant. Medium-full bodied, the palate is gently mouthfilling with sweet and juicy, ripe and luscious flavours of raspberries and subtle notes of boysenberries entwined with jam, floral and confectionary elements. The fruit is underlined by supple tannin extraction and soft, integrated acidity providing a fine-textured mouthfeel and line. The tannins grow in presence and carry the wine to a dry, textural finish with lifted red fruits, jam and floral nuances. This is an up-front, raspberry-fruited Rioja with jammy motes and fine, grainy textures providing a dry finish. Match with barbecued and grilled red meat dishes over the next 4-6 years. 100% Tempranillo from limestone rich clay soils, fermented over 15 days in stainless-steel tanks to 13.5% alc., with 10% of the wine aged 5 months in French oak. 17.5-/20 Sep 2017 RRP $28.00
