An outstanding Rioja – dried red fruit and aromatic herbs. Decanter Gold Medal.

Elegant and complex Rioja Gran Reserva 2009 vintage, from vineyard “Montecillo” established in 1874. Rioja is world-famous for ageing its wines in oak barrels for extended periods of time, which creates complex wine with soft tannins. With over 2 years of oak ageing and 3 further years in the bottle, the Montecillo Gran Reserva 2009 presents the classics of Rioja with characteristic silky tannins and aromas of spice, dried fruit, vanilla, leather and aromatic herbs.

“An intriguing nose beckons you with fresh red fruit, spice and a herbal depth. The palate is fine and delicate with more red fruit supported by layers of seasoned oak providing a clean and bright finish of considerable length.” – Gold Medal, Decanter World Wine Awards (2008 vintage)

  2. Martin

    This was everything you expect from a 2009 Gran Reserva, smooth and mellow, lots of tasty fruits, could drink this all night!

  3. Garry_R

    Very enjoyable wine. Had this last night, it was lovely and smooth and very easy to drink. For me personally it tasted like a wine with some age and I got the taste of berries initially before hints of Vanilla and something I can’t describe. All in all I’m happy with this wine and I would certainly order a case if it was on offer.

  4. Kerry Grant

    Very smooth with the right level of oaky taste. The finest rioja I have tasted!
