Beronia Reserva Rioja 2018


Modern but still authentic.  It's got to be one of the best priced Rioja's about!

Our house premium Spanish red.  Just offers so much for the money. Not too modern and not to old. 

Beronia Reserva 2018 is a deep black plum colour, clean and bright with a garnet rim. Attractive and intriguing on the nose it displays nutty aromas – roasted almonds, walnuts – followed by notes of plum primarily but also ripe fruit and a pleasant hint of white pepper, which all add complexity and freshness. Full bodied the palate, the wine displays balanced acidity. The flavours are mostly of ripe fruit, whilst the finish is sweet and smooth, bringing to mind cacao and roasted hazelnuts. This is a delicious wine, best enjoyed unhurriedly.

Deep violet to the eye, this wine has a nose of black plum, dark chocolate and dried hillside herbs. Bold red berry flavors are joined by plush tannins and deeper notes of mocha, truffle and thyme. As flavors and textures wind down on the palate, a note of orange zest remains. — Mike DeSimone 92/100 Wine Enthusiast
