Rioja Tempranillo Moraza, natural wine, organic Rioja, 100% Tempranillo, very juicy red fruits, clean mineral palate, can serve lightly chilled, NO OAK!! When you tatse young Rioja like this, you wander why they so often cover this grape with oaky flavours. It has a lovely sour cherry and crunchy red fruit character with gentle tannins and a clean backbone of acidity. Some salt marsh lamb (from up the road from us in Grange over Sands) done very quickly on the grill with a bottle of this and you are a very happy person! Moraza really are showing the old guard how its done with their excellent fresh red and white Riojas. Give this a try for a new (although authentic) Rioja experience without the oak!
