Bodegas Tarón is the northernmost winery in Rioja; situated in Rioja Alta under the Cantabrian Mountains. It is the collaboration of four small towns in the Rioja Alta region; Cuzcurrita de Rio Tirón, Sajazarra, Villaseca and Tirgo. These four winemaking towns decided that as they share not only the landscape but their culture too, they would benefit from pooling together their vineyards and knowledge to create one Bodega focussed on creating high quality Rioja’s. Bodegas Tarón has 700 hectares of vineyards spread over more than 1000 small plots. Some of the oldest vines are over 100 years old which go into making their wine. The aim was to start an exciting project in order to share what they do best – the wine they make – with the world.
Ruby red with garnet reflections, velvety soft and smooth on the palate with a fresh acidity. Supple tannins support the core of ripe blackberries and cherries combined with notes of cinnamon, vanilla, balsamic, coffee and chocolate from 9 months in French oak barrels. A wine with fantastic complexity and a very long and elegant finish.
