The First Lady of the classic range, this Gran Reserva is pure class. It is aged in oak barrels for two and a half years, spending a further 3 years in bottle before release. The result is a wine with great elegance and finesse. The nose has aromas of plums, blueberries and fig, whilst the palate has flavours of sweet spices, cloves and well-integrated oak. The finish is smooth, silky and balanced.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
In the Basque region of Northern Spain there is an old tradition of 'Gastronomic Societies', where men with a passion for food and for wine meet to cook, eat and drink. One such group of friends firmly believed they could produce fine wines to complement their culinary skills. The result: Bodegas Beronia, named after the Berones, a warring Celtic tribe who inhabited the area in the 3rd Century BC .
In 1982 Gonzalez Byass purchased the Bodega and as such, Beronia has grown to become one of the most popular Riojas in Spain.
