Bodegas Jalón 'Peña Aldera' Rioja Crianza Tempranillo/Graciano
Grape: Tempranillo, Graciano
Bodegas Jalón is a small family run bodega that produces high quality wine from their own 10 hectares of vineyards within the Iregua Valley. The vineyards are certified organic and are between 460 and 500 metres above sea level. This Crianza is aged for 22 months in older oak, which adds some refined structure to their fruit-forward style of Rioja. Cherries, dark fruits and some roasted spice dominate the nose and palate, with just a touch of meatiness. A elegant everyday Rioja that delivers notable fruit. This Rioja is light enough to enjoy alone, or would be great roasted pork dishes, and can handle a bit of spice, so chorizo is a go!
