    Description

    Bodegas Bilbaínas is located in the Barrio de la Estación of Haro, the most prestigious place of the Rioja Alta wineries. Known as the oldest bottler in Rioja and the largest vineyard owner in the Rioja Alta region, Bodegas Bilbaínas is worldwide recognized as the creator of great wines showcasing exceptional intensity and concentration. Routed by our heritage and adapted for today's wine drinker, Viña Zaco aims to offer the full expression of Spain’s most renowned varietals from the best wine regions with a modern winemaking style.The Tempranillo for this wine comes from the area of Rioja Alta, in the vicinity of Haro. In this area, strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean, with its predominantly chalky clay soils, Tempranillo grapes display their full splendor. The varietal achieves optimum maturation, characterized by floral aromas of violets, fresh acidity, and round tannins. Viña Zaco Tempranillo pairs perfectly with a formal lunch, a Spanish tapas casual dinner or a drink after work on a rooftop terrace. We recommend you drink it along with tapas, pasta dishes, young cheeses, chicken, grilled vegetables and BBQ.
    Farmed using organic practises.

    Variety Description

    Tempranillo

    Tempranillo  is a black grape variety widely grown to make full-bodied red wines in its native Spain. It is the main grape used in Rioja, and is often referred to as Spain's noble grape. Unlike more aromatic red wine varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot noir, Tempranillo has a relatively neutral profile so it is often blended with other varieties, such as Grenache and Carignan (known in Rioja as Mazuelo), or aged for extended periods in oak where the wine easily takes on the flavor of the barrel.

    Country Description

    Spain

    Spain is the most widely wine producing country in the world, but the dry, infertile soil found in many Spanish wine regions makes low yields making Spain only the third largest wine producing country. The country has an abundance of native grape varieties, with over 400 varieties planted throughout Spain though 80 percent of the country's wine production is from only 20 grapes. Major Spanish wine regions include the Rioja and Ribera del Duero which is known for their Tempranillo production; Valdepeñas, known for high quality tempranillo at low prices; Jerez, the home of the fortified wine Sherry; Rías Baixas in the northwest region of Galicia that is known for its white wines made from Albariño and Catalonia which includes the Cava and still wine producing regions of the Penedès as well the Priorat region.

    Region Description

    Rioja

    Rioja is a wine region, with Denominación de Origen Calificada (D.O.Ca. Qualified designation of origin) named after La Rioja, in Spain, located in the north of the country. Rioja is further subdivided into three zones: Rioja Alta, Rioja Baja and Rioja Alavesa. Many wines have traditionally blended fruit from all three regions though there is a slow growth in single-zone wines. Rioja wines are normally a blend of various grape varieties, and can be either red (tinto), white (blanco) or rosé (rosado). Among the Tintos, the best-known and most widely used variety is Tempranillo. Other grapes used include Garnacha Tinta, Graciano, and Mazuelo. A typical blend will consist of approximately 60% Tempranillo and up to 20% Garnacha, with much smaller proportions of Mazuelo and Graciano.
