An excellent example of balance, this Rioja combines power and complexity in a particularly fresh style. It is superb after some years in the cellar! More info

Predicador is a blend of Tempranillo and Mazuelo grapes from parcels located around San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Ábalos and Labastida. In order to obtain the best concentration and maturity, the vines are cluster thinned to leave only one bunch per branch. Next comes a long period of cold maceration and 14-16 months' élevage in French barrique barrels. The wine has great complexity: powerful, but with very mellow tannins and great, fresh length in the mouth. A textbook example of balance!

Rioja Bodega Contador DOCa Predicador Benjamin Romeo serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Entrecôte grillée, Côte de boeuf au barbecue, Gigot d'agneau.
