Product Description
Details

Produced by Finca de la Rica, El Nómada is an impeccable Crianza red wine.

It is made from a blend of 90% Tempranillo, coming from 60-year-old, mostly south-oriented vineyards, complemented with 10% of old, over 70-year-old Graciano.

Incidentally, the 2018 vintage of this Spanish red wine was considered "Good" by the La Rioja regulatory board.

Once in the cellar, the meticulously selected grapes were vinified in 10,000-litre stainless steel tanks.

After that, El Nómada 2018 was transferred into French oak barrels. Then it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 13 months.

Aerate this Rioja red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

Nose

While keeping a completely unpretentious character, this Tempranillo & Graciano has a lot to offer. Toasted and and forest-floor aromas, which slowly give way to a cascade of ripe black fruit, spices, some balsamic and mineral remembrances and remembrances of cocoa and leather.

Palate

This red wine of Finca de la Rica is intense, seductive and well-defined. Crisp, rich and extremely inviting, with a balanced acidity and some delicious, uplifting tannins. Smooth texture and a long finish with a complex aftertaste of coffee, fruit, earth and underbrush.

Our personal opinion

A Rioja which looks towards the future, El Nómada 2018 will pair successfully with all kinds of food.

Outstanding value. Elevage is excellent, with almost unnoticed oak. Good fruit and terroir.

You will hardly find a better wine for this price!! It is mineral and surprisingly deep. It will live for a long time. I always decant it 1 hour minimum and the wine really improves with it.
