Vina Ilusion Rioja 2021

Unit price per
A gorgeous red Rioja from one of the highest elevations in the Rioja Baja area (700 m a.s.l.). Winemaker Martín Alonso is a proponent of the techniques of Masanobu Fukuoka, a Japanese agricultural maverick with practices that have done well on Martín's vineyards, which are filled with iron-rich clay and limestone soils. Unoaked to emphasize the pure fruit from the local Tempranillo grape, Viña Ilusión started in 1992 and today has a mere five hectares of vineyards.

Deep red in the glass with a purple hue. Perfumed aromas of raspberries, redcurrants, black pepper and liquorice. The palate is mineral and smooth with subtle flavours of cassis and summer red fruits leading to a spicy finish. Unlike most wines from the area, this one doesn't see any oak which keeps its fruit aromas intact and fresh.
