    We offered this a few months back from the 2001 and 2004 vintage. This is the 2010, another superb vintage in the history of Rioja, classical varieties of Tempranillo, Graciano and a little Mazuelo. Excellent now, for a wine under $60 you would open along-side a 2nd Growth from Bordeaux and a great 1er Cru from Burgundy and it is just as good! Balanced, lovely texture, full bodied, spicy and cigar box notes, delineated and powerful yet beautifully elegant. Drinking now or over the next 4-5 years.... more »

  • El Puntido Gran Reserva 2005 NZD $94.95 NZD $79.95
    Ahh ha! How can we put this? Let’s say outstanding, brilliant and magnificent, El Puntido which was established in 1863, they have well over a century of producing wines of pedigree and outstanding quality. Very full bodied and made from Tempranillo and Graciano with a huge middle palate, great intensity, clarity and focus. Very young even though it is a 2005 but it is already starting to show lovely flavours of saffron, grilled chorizo with a freshness of spring flowers and dry herbs. This will be one of the best value for money wines that we’ve ever had, and we’ve had a few! If you’re going to try it now, decant it and leave it all day, however it will cellar for up to 20 years.... more »

Exactly what you would expect from a top notch Rioja, full bodied with immense middle palate, depth and structure. Drinking now or over the next 10 years, this is a wine that will compare to any top Premier Cru from Burgundy or a top Bordeaux however at a fraction of the price. In essence when it comes to value, you cannot get much better than this at $36.95.... more »
