Wine

Rioja Pontac de Portiles, Bodegas Luis Alegre, 75cl

£76.50

Selection to achieve perfection. The wine is solely produced in years in which the exclusivity of a good wine will be truly achieved. This is paramount for us and our consumers demand this as well.
Throughout the winter, thorough wine-growing techniques are employed. This careful process involves selective pruning, constant ploughing to oxygenate the soil, a total absence of treatments which are aggressive towards the environment and a very limited production ceiling, which is as low as 1.20 kg per vine. From these painstakingly treated kilos (about 20,000 kg), we then isolate the best 9,000 kg at our selection tables. Wines are made in two tanks made out of French Allier oak with a low volume capacity (5,000 kg), in order to ensure perfect control over temperature and fermentation development. The wine is aged in a selection of superfine grain oaks from several European countries (including France, Hungary, and Slovenia).
A complex aroma. A distinct ripe fruit fragrance, with a black fruit and compote scent, blends in perfectly against the wood backdrop, containing hints of black pepper, balsamic and very mineral notes, with the highlights being the quality of the timber and the fine and elegant tannins.
Powerful and full-bodied, tannic but well-balanced, with elegant and subtle tannins. Its potent structure brings it a high ageing power. Long and persistent.
