2015 Conde de los Andes Tempranillo

Rioja, Spain

Powerful Tempranillo from a well-respected Rioja producer.


Love the power of this.

About The Wine

A serious wine of gravitas and depth here from the underground cellars of Conde de los Andes.

These ancient underground caves have been restored by the Murua family who took over the property in 2014, turning them into a subterranean winery primed for making small-batch premium wines. 

This Tempranillo comes from old vines on some of the best elevated plots bordering Haro of Rioja in the Alta sub-zone. 

It's a powerhouse wine that shows both immense fruit and great control. A refined Rioja for the modern era and one that mightly impressed Campbell Mattinson in his 94 point review.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Love the power of this. It is these three things at once: tight, rich and restrained. It tastes of leather, blackberry, iodine and toasty, malty, creamy oak. It doesn’t sound restrained, and it is indeed full-bodied, but just when you think it’s going to turn it up to 11 it turns structural and long. It’s a red for winter and it is most impressive." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
