Límite Sur 2017, Ramón Bilbao
With its deep, vibrant ruby colour and alluring nose of bright cherries, pink peppercorns and new leather, this draws you in to take a sip. You can tell that this is a seriously good wine with a sense of place from its excellent balance of fruit to acidity and tannin. It has what it takes to cellar for a few years if desired, but it is also absolutely ready to enjoy immediately. This is made 100% from the Garnacha variety, with grapes grown at 560m to 600m altitude in Monte Yerga in the south-east of Rioja. The height and breezes temper the summer heat, giving the wine freshness.
