Classic Tempranillo with all the hallmark, velvety, toasty flavours that have made Rioja such a hit. The grapes come from the old vineyards of Rioja Alavesa, rare in such a modestly priced wine, and key to its popularity and Trophy winning history.
"Love this. Full bodied but not overpowering. Smooth and moreish with a big berry finish"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Vintage after vintage, Barón de Barbón proves to be our bestselling Rioja. It’s a lot to do with the wine’s enticing berry aromas, silky texture and luscious flavour. The talent behind this contemporary, fruit driven red is the young and infectiously keen Javier Murúa. His father Julián owns Bodegas Muriel (a winery Julián’s parents established in 1926) in Rioja’s superior Alavesa. We have a fabulous working relationship with the family, ensuring our Buyer Beth goes in straight after vintage and gets first refusal on the finest vats. With its mouthfilling, red berry flavours and fragrant vanilla character, this supple Rioja is most enjoyable solo or with simple suppers such as grilled lamb chops, char-grilled vegetable kebabs or chicken.
