About the Wine

Very tasty, very youthful, very nicely priced Rioja from El Mozo, an organic grower in Rioja Alavesa. If you prefer your Rioja in the 'joven' style - that means fresher, fruit-driven and kept away from the oak barrels; this is the one. It's made in the maceratión carbónica style to yield maxium juice and dial back the tannic structure. There's also a splash of Viura in there too (a white grape) to lighten things further. Such a little sweet-spot bargain.
