La Nieta has been coined one of the best wines in the country from Rioja Alavesa. Applying a viticulture respectful with the environment following the biorhythms of the plant and organic fertilization. The result is a pure expression of the fruit and environment. Patience has been rewarded, with 3 years in French oak and further bottle age providing a full, complex and gratifying experience for the lucky drinker.
In the words of the winemaker: 'The effort and perseverance become subtlety and elegance'.
With an impressive intense and deep black garnet colour, with aromas of violets, blackberry, licorice and clove. Incredibly complex with many layers and nuances that will develop in your glass for hours.
95 points, Decanter
"The Eguren family manages a number of projects in Rioja. At the tiny winery of Paganos, Marcos Eguren produces just two wines (the other is El Puntido). La Nieta is 100% Tempranillo, spending 18 months in new French oak. The richness of the young fruit masks the oak, creating a powerful and concentrated wine that will grow into itself to express its elegance." Sarah Jane Evans, Decanter.
