Tempranillo Crianza, Finca Antigua, La Mancha, Spain 2016/17
Regular price £11.50
The Martínez Bujanda family acquired Finca Antigua at the beginning of 1999. Beforehand, they had been involved in wine production in the region of Rioja but wanted to diversify and also shine a light on what they thought to be one of Spain’s most misunderstood regions.
La Mancha is a sprawling region but the family fell in love with the Finca Antigua plot, located between Cuenca and Toledo.
Here, they began using the expertise they had gained during their time in Rioja to produce wines which quickly became among the flagship of the region. There is no question that their wines highlight the value for money which can be found in Spain’s lesser known viticultural areas.
Tempranillo Crianza 2016/17
Aromas of preserved red fruit, yoghurt, dried figs, vanilla, toffee and white chocolate. Very elegant contribution from the barrel-ageing with a nice balance between fruit and oak. Elegant, concentrated and long in the mouth.
