Rioja Vega Crianza Limited Edition 2017
Those that are in the know can always spot a bargain so it came as no surprise to see that one of most popular wines in our recent Bank Holiday sale was the Limited Edition 2017 Crianza from Rioja Vega. So as a little present to you all were giving you another bite of the cherry and offering this little beauty from one of the oldest names in the region at the sale price for a little longer.
The latest 2017 vintage has won multiple gold medals and is made by one of the few Bodegas officially allowed to include Rioja in its name. It really packs a punch with intensity derived from super ripe tempranillo grapes excellently enhanced with 18 months of oak ageing to add structure, balance and a lovely distinctive vanilla finish. "A very fine modern Rioja."

Hows does the wine taste?
An expressive red bursting with dark fruits. It has soft tannins, a fresh, clean acidity and delicious complexity from the 18 months ageing in oak barrels.
What do the critics say?
"A very fine modern Rioja. 90/100"
"The 2017 Rioja Vega Edición Limitada Crianza is a little gem. An oak-aged 75 per cent Tempranillo/25 per cent Graciano blend from one of Riojas oldest bodegas, its full of rich, ripe, succulent dark fruit flavours backed by warm toasted spice and vanilla on the finish. A worthy Decanter Gold Medal winner."
