2018 | Spain | Tempranillo
Binario Crianza - $34
This light organic Spanish red comes from the Rioja region in Spain. Believe it or not, Rioja is still rebounding from the effects of WWI, WWII and the Spanish Civil War. Country wide hunger led the government to tear up vineyards to plant wheat to feed the populace. It wasn't until the 1960's that vines got replanted into the vineyards, and in 1970 Rioja had "a vintage of the century!" that firmly put them on the modern winemaking map where they've firmly been ever since.
Grapes: 100% Tempranillo
Muddled raspberries and sweet cinnamon with tart cherry and a hint of pink peppercorn. A light wine for Rioja it manages to balance a fresh, tart acidity with the lush ripe red fruits the region is known for.
Rich risotto, chicken kabobs, spanakopita
