Barón de Barbón Oak Aged Rioja 2017
Outstanding value, eminently quaffable Rioja from the cellar of the talented Murúa family
Vintage after vintage, this proves to be our bestselling Rioja. It's a lot to do with the wine's enticing berry aromas, silky texture and luscious flavour.
The talent behind this contemporary, fruit driven red is the young and infectiously keen Javier Murúa. His father Julián owns Bodegas Muriel (a winery Julián's parents originally established in 1926) in Rioja's superior Alavesa. We have a fabulous working relationship with the family, ensuring our Buyer Beth goes in straight after vintage and gets first refusal on the finest vats.
With its mouthfilling, red berry flavours and fragrant vanilla character, this supple Rioja is most enjoyable solo or with simple suppers such as grilled lamb chops, char-grilled vegetable kebabs or chicken and chorizo skewers.
