Bodegas Beronia Rioja Tempranillo 2019

Rioja Alta, Rioja, SpainBeronia is located in Ollauri, at the heart of Rioja Alta, at elevation and with a mix of clay and chalky soils. The winery was founded in 1973 by a group of friends from the Basque region, who wanted the best wine to accompany their gastronomic fĂȘtes (Txoko in Basque). The winery was acquired by Gonzalez Byass in 1982. The winery is surrounded by 20 hectares of estate vineyards, though Beronia also controls 870 hectares of contract vineyards within a 10km radius of the winery. Beronia is one of the top 5 Rioja brands in Spain, and is sold in 80+ global markets. It's easy to see why, with the friendly, charming, yet savoury black cherry, wild blackberry, black plum ruling the palate, cut with a herbal salinity, and framed with finely grippy, integrated, spicy oak tannins. Drink now, with grilled pork, sausages, or mushrooms.Tasted: 22 May 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 18.99 select private retailers ON 20.00 LCBO QC 21.50 SAQ MB 24.00 AB 23.00 Producer: Bodegas BeroniaDistributors: Andrew Peller Import Agency
