Part of “Our team's favourites”
We may not be able to spend much time in the spring sunshine at the moment but drinking this wine might help you to feel a little more spring-like!
It is produced by brothers Paco and Eliseo Olivan at their tiny estate in the heart of the Rioja, around 20 kilometres from the regional capital of Logroño.
Made using Garnacha, it is a lighter, fresher style than many examples of Spanish rosé. Expect lots of bright red fruit, fresh acidity – delicious and refreshing.
Terroir-drive wines – family-owned – 23 hectares
Hacienda Grimón is run by brothers Paco and Eliseo. From their 25 hectare base in a secluded corner of the Rioja Alta, they produce organic wines that accurately reflect the subtleties of their family estate. The majority of their wines experience extended ageing, therefore great care is taken to ensure that all grapes are as healthy as possible. As a result, no herbicides or pesticides are used at any stage and hand harvesting is employed for all their vineyards.
