A full-flavoured, perfectly-ready-to-drink, barrel-fermented and aged (about 30% new oak)

Chardonnay of concentration and length.

Gold medal in the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards: “Exotic nose of honeysuckle, lemon and lime,

of fruit on the palate with fine balance, a lemon-lime cordial intensity and long, mineral finish.

Very classy and complex wine. 96/100”.

The top wine from El Lagar de Isilla in Ribera del Duero, a region the Spanish feel produces wines

of equal or higher quality to Rioja. The finesse, in the fierce Spanish sun, comes from the altitude:

the vineyards are at 820-840m.100% Tempranillo, including some parcels 80-90 years old. Youthful

red fruit alongside toasty oak on a pure, velvety palate. Opulent and svelte.

Bordeaux, France

 Scents of brambly fruit with a lead pencil note. Ripe, rounded and supple. Textured but

not heavy at all. Lovely balance and depth.
