Antona Garcia, Rejadorada

REJA005
Funky Label, highlighting the top wine from this boutique producer. I especially loved the ripe forward nose of crushed red fruits, balancing sweet oak and subtle spice notes. Integrated, complete and poised, this is a wine to open and savour, preferably watching the sun go down whilst the steaks spit on the Barbeque

Bodega Rejadorada

Bodega Rejadorada was officially formed in 1999 with one objective: to extract the maximum personality from the Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) varietal. In 2003 a new cellar was built in San Roman de Hornija in the province of Valladolid equipped with the newest technology for the elaboration, aging and bottling of wine. The wines from this terroir are the result of a long-standing tradition; these vines are ungrafted and phylloxera-free and have been growing on the banks of the River Duero since the Roman times.

Tasting Notes

Full bodied, intense nose and offering warm and mulled red fruits, nice lick of jam, oak and spice. The tannins wrap around the brooding core, and 30 mins breathing release a richness of fruit and heady, generous structure that really hits the spot.

Food Matches

Creamy cheeses, grilled meat. Pizzas and pasta dishes. Nuts and pates.

Vinification

Manual harvest of the Finca “Miralmonte”, selection of the best bunches in the winery, pre-­‐fermentation maceration and slow fermentation at a controlled temperature. Aged for 11 months in selected French, Hungarian and American oak barrels.

Press Comments

Decanter 2021, Top Castilla Y Leons to Try, 2021, 90 points: "Very fragrant, attactive nose of dark berry fruit. Some pleasingly grainy-gritty Toro tannins and lovely, almost claret-like bramble berry fruit. Richness and depth but not overworked."
