Product Description

Bordeaux-native winemaker Tom Puyabert, founder and head of Bodegas Exopto from DOCa Rioja, is the producer of the red wine La Mimbrera de Exopto Graciano, one of the bottlings of the Vinos de Parcela collection of the winery.

A rare varietal Graciano, this Spanish red wine is sourced from the first plot planted by Mr. Puyabert in La Mimbrera, a centenary vineyard composed of clay-limestone soils with gravel on the surface dating from 1920 and located in Ábalos, at 450 metres of altitude.

Hot and rainy, the 2020 vintage of this Crianza red wine was hand-picked in mid October in 15 kg boxes. After a traditional vinification under controlled temperature and a 2 week maceration, the red wine La Mimbrera de Exopto Graciano 2020 was aged in used for 15 months in 600-litre used French oak barrels. It was bottled with a very low sulfite content (28 mg/litre.)

Only 900 bottles produced.

Decant this single vineyard wine some time before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine La Mimbrera de Exopto Graciano is deep ruby with some purplish reflections.


This varietal Graciano is rich, expansive and primarily floral, evolving into aromas of ripe forest berries and cherries, fig bread, ground pepper, mountain herbs, spices and flowers.


A wine of pleasure rather than a meditation wine, this varietal Graciano from Bodegas Exopto is elegant, ripe and spicy, with a steely acidity, some sinewy tannins and a nice concentration of ripe forest berries, leading to a long and balsamic finish.
