‘The varietal red 2018 Laventura Tempranillo had notes of iron and soil and has a medium-bodied palate with the chalky sensation from the dry-farmed vines in the limestone soils from Rioja Alavesa. This is serious, austere and clean, balanced and more cerebral than exuberant. It's 13.5% alcohol. It fermented in concrete with indigenous yeasts and matured in large oak barrels for one year. 2022-2026’ – Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate, 92/100

‘This wine has a medium garnet colour with primary fruit aromas of raspberries, redcurrant, red cherries, black berries and plums. Secondary aromas of oak, brioche, and vanilla to the lees contact and ageing for one year in barrel. The palate is textured with a present tannin. Good acidity, body and length. Good ageing potential on this wine. – Winemaker

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.
