Hacienda Grimon Rioja Crianza, Spain

An organic Rioja Crianza with generous aromas of black fruits with black pepper and sweet spices. The palate is quite full bodied for a Crianza due to the quality of fruit used and longer than average ageing in oak.

The ripe tannins and fresh acidity balance the richness of the fruit which results in an elegant and classy Rioja, a serious Crianza and cut above most others you will try.

Food Match: Pork, grilled lamb, manchego cheese
