This Tempranillo from Spain's Rioja region has spicy floral aromas mixed with pleasing notions of baked plum, blackberry and smoke. Red and dark fruit flavors are joined by hints of pepper and clove including a striking mineral quality. Surprisingly for a Rioja, this wine sees no oak aging.
Boysenberry, baked plum, black licorice and smoke.
Bodegas Biurko Borri is located in Bargota, a small town on the slopes of Mt. Yoar in the foothills of the Sierra Cantabria, which provides Rioja with a natural border to the north. For generations, the Llorens family has farmed their rocky, high altitude vineyards with a traditional and natural approach to farming and winemaking. The current bodega was built in the early nineties when the family decided to make a major investment to adapt their older wine-making and ageing systems. This has allowed them to craft a high quality wine which faithfully retains the purity of the grape. The Arbanta is made from a prized vineyard that is organic certified.
For a traditional Spanish wine, why not serve traditional Spanish food? My Spanish Style Paella is a perfect dish particularly at this time of the year. Make in a large paella pan and place on your table and let everybody dig in for themselves. The best made Paella's usually have a crispy, caramelized, toasted bottom (called socarrat in Valencia but pegado in Latin America) that is considered a delicacy!
Throughout Spain, the way to request a glass of red wine is to shout "un Rioja" at the barman.
