World-class Riojas – Viñas Leizaola, El Sacramento Genérico 2014

Viñas Leizaola, El Sacramento Genérico 2014

RRP £39

One of the most exciting wines to emerge in Rioja over the past decade, El Sacramento is the brainchild of Belgian wine importer Etienne Cordonnier, who sold a Bordeaux château to create an estate in Rioja. It’s a subtle, stylish, beautifully crafted blend of Tempranillo with 8% Graciano. Serious, yet polished.
