The most unique Rioja I've ever tasted. Archeticht Javier Arizcuren started to make wine from the family vineyards in 2011, these vineyards were planted by his grandad in the Yerga Mountain range, he helped to cultivate when he was a boy. The grape here is Mazuelo (Cariñena) once widely planted across Rioja. But was ripped up in many vineyards as it wasn't good for producing bulk wine. Javier vinifies in large cement tanks, then matures in old neutral oak - everything he does is to showcase the quality of the fruit. This is dream pairing with lamb chops. Plenty of tart red cherries with a perfumed nose.
