Rioja 10×10

We headed down to Bank Hall to taste an eclectic range of wines from Rioja. Oaked Whites, young Crianzas and the granddaddy Gran Reservas were all on display. Surprisingly enough what got our attention was the non- Tempranillo display that had some delicious 100% Graciano and Maturana Tinta offerings. Bodegas Aradón’s Graciano offering left us leaving the hall with a gleeful buzz. Still we were reminded how complex and pleasurable Tempernillo can be in Reserva offerings from Bordegas Altanza (Lealtanza Reserva) and Marqués De Murrieta (Dalmau Reserva)
