Bodegas Bhilar Phinca Abejera Rioja Alavesa 2017

£47.50 GBP

David Sampedro Gil is a biodynamic wine maker in Rioja Alavesa, where he has been farming biodynamically since 1999. Cultivating native varieties, he tends to his vines with the utmost care; replacing tractors for horses and eliminating the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. He promotes biodiversity in his vineyard, leaving his plots looking wild and almost overgrown; a rewilding practice, reviving the overworked and chemical polluted soils. His sustainable approach doesn’t stop in the vineyard but extends to his solar powered cellar and winery.

A blend of Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha & Viura. These vines range from 35 to 100 years of age and the wine is aged for 36 months in French oak barrels.

Hedgerow fruits, herbs and spices, this is a complex and full-bodied wine with great depth and concentration, fine tannins and a firm backbone of acidity.
