‘This wine has a light red colour with a floral nose of rose and violets. Red currant, cranberry, red cherry and black cherry are dominant on the nose and palate. The palate is light and textured with a medium body, alcohol and acidity.’ – MacRobert and Canals

'The pale and delicate 2018 Laventura Garnacha shows very elegant and clean aromas of flowers and red fruit, with perfectly integrated oak giving it a spicy twist, but there's nothing oaky about it. It comes from two plots in the village of Tudelilla, where Garnacha thrives, and both vineyards are old, dry-farmed and head-pruned. The destemmed grapes fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts, and the wine matured in 600-liter oak barrels for 12 months. It combines power and elegance; it's balanced; and it has a soft palate with fine, textured tannins and a long and serious finish. It has the austere profile that to me is the house's signature. 3,000 bottles were filled in August 2019. 2020 - 2024.' – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 93/100 (Oct 2020)

Producer information Former Young Gun, Bryan MacRobert, moved to Rioja 7 years ago to start Laventura. Today, his new terroir-driven wines are causing a fuss! ‘I want to make Rioja as it once was. I’m trying to make honest wines,’ says Bryan whose wines are refreshing, innovative and true-to-terroir style of Rioja. With cellars located in the centre of La Rioja, they source high-quality grapes from the whole region. The vineyards are often 40 to 90 years old and harvesting is done by hand. ‘It’s time to take Rioja far more seriously,’ writes Tim Atkin MW as the Rioja landscape changes dramatically.
