The Charge

Rioja D.O.C.
This Rioja takes its name from the medieval knights and pilgrims who crossed the region on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Working with the great winemaker Rodolfo Bastida in Haro, Rioja Alta, this is a lovely, wine with excellent red cherry and strawberry fruit, refreshing acidity balanced with fine vanilla flavours from aging in American oak. The Charge is made from grapes from all over the Rioja region and is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha from four separate vineyard lots. A very easy to drink, modern Rioja to serve with grilled meats, barbecues and casual suppers.
