About The Wine
From the red wine roads of northern Spain’s Rioja, this savoury medium bodied red is fresh, delicate and fine-tuned.
Unusual for wine at this price, grapes for this come from the estate’s extensive holdings of old bush vineyards.
Leading with Garnacha’s bright nature and just a splash of Tempranillo, this unoaked, juicy muddle of blue black fruit and dusty red cherries is a cracker.
About Real Agrado
Started by agricultural engineer Juan Manuel Domínguez in 1974, Real Agrado is today run by Julian Ayuga. Having worked as a consultant, winemaker, and member of the DOC Rioja for many years, he's highly regarded and has mentored many young stars of the region. At 72 years of age, he proudly claims that nobody alive has opened more bottles of Rioja than him!
The wines are labelled Viñedos en Propiedad, being sourced from 100 hectares of family-owned vineyards, divided into four vineyard areas. These are located in the two south-eastern pueblos of Aldeanuevo and Alfaro, areas with a distinct Mediterranean influence, nestled in the foothills of scenic Monte Yerga.
Real means ‘true’ or ‘real’, indicative of the use of only estate-owned grapes, and desire to reflect location in their wines. Agrado refers to the pleasure you get out of doing. something you love.
