MacRobert & Canals sounds more like a law firm than a winery, which isn’t far from the truth, but most importantly… it’s a love story. Bryan MacRobert grew up in Swartland, the largest winemaking region in South Africa, where he studied oenology and worked for several years. His travels lead him to Rioja, where a chance encounter with winemaker Clara Canals changed his life. The two fell madly in love and began splitting their time between Spain, and South Africa. Clara’s father, a lawyer, decided to invest in their marriage and passion, and MacRobert & Canals was born! Black cherries, strawberries and cherries, soft and balanced tannins, great texture, acidity and length, this is a noticeably fresher style of Rioja, making is more food friendly than most. Hold onto for a couple years, or enjoy right away.
