The Charge

Rioja D.O.C.
This is a pretty, exuberant wine which comes from the Rioja Baja. It is bright and fruity on the nose with very attractive, juicy, cherry flavoured, Tempranillo fruit. Sweet and fresh with red berry, spicy flavours with a touch of coffee and pure chocolate. On the palate there is refreshing acidity balanced by fine vanilla flavours from aging in a mix of American and French oak. There are delicious flavours in the finish and an abiding spicy, finish. The Charge red is made from 70% Tempranillo and 30% Garnacha grapes, harvested mid-September. Drink young alongside roast lamb, barbecues and stews.
