Bodegas Aldonia, 100, 2015, Rioja, Spain
Sommelier Wine Awards 2019 Silver Medal!
For Corina Stanila of La Dame de Pic at Ten Trinity Square, this wine had ‘a beautiful nose of plum and cherry with meaty notes and hints of cassis’, and she thought ‘the complex palate offers more ripe fruit and great balance’.
Previously Gold at the SWA!
" Made from 100-year-old Garnacha vines, this is a concentrated and medium-bodied Rioja. It has an expressive nose with autumnal, sweet fruit and slips down with a fair degree of silkiness. There is a lovely texture to this wine - it really is very good indeed. "
