Bodega Akutain 'Cosecha', Rioja, Spain 2019
Rioja doesn't have to mean big, bold wines. There's an expression of Rioja that is more lifted and high toned, wines that you can drink anytime of day and feel heavy afterwards. This Rioja does just that, comprised of mostly Tempranillo with Garnacha, is fermented in fiberglass vats with native yeasts and raised for a short time in the same fiber glass vats. Pure and fruit driven, a perfect match with a variety of tapas.
Pairing: Tapas style dishes
Grape: Tempranillo, Garnacha
