Unica, Rioja Reserva, 2009

  Sierra Cantabria

Unica, Rioja Reserva

Blended from a selection of Reserva barrels from the Sierra Cantabria winery with the aim of producing a true Sonsierra wine. Given 14 months in one third new oak, 60% of which is French, this has a different profile to the rest of the Sierra Cantabria wines. Highly seductive, bursting with silky star-bright black cherry and red berry fruit, liquorice, cinnamon and vanilla, all the way through to sleek, sumptuous and highly moreish finish. Hard to resist.

Contains Sulphites.

About Sierra Cantabria

Established in 1870, Sierra Cantabria is a truly brilliant Rioja estate, creating cool, fresh wines with plenty of suave character. Combining knowledge and tradition accumulated over five generations, the Eguren family believe that “above all, we are grape growers”.

Located at the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria, covering 18 hectares and at an altitude of 560 meters, it has an Atlantic climate but is also influenced by Mediterranean and Continental climates. The calcareous clay soil is excellent for obtaining high quality wines and to enhance the expression of the Tempranillo Peludo.

Appellation: Rioja

Spains most famous wine growing region is seeing something of a revolution. A band of new producers are shunning the traditional methods of production in a effort to gain greater purity of fruit, less dominant oak influence, and individual terroir characteristics. The results are wines that have the ability to age and improve in bottle, that have finesse, character and real elegance.
