Herederos Valcavada Rioja
A fantastic new wine from this superb boutique winery in Rioja.
The wine itself is beautiful. Plenty of body, super smooth and integrated as all Herederos's wines are. Like their other wines it is low in sulphites and additives as they farm biodynamically and use absolute minimal additives or manipulation.
Great value. We predict this will be a big seller.
