Cantor Rojo Rioja 2018

This Cantor Rojo Rioja is a contemporary expression of this popular red wine, exclusively created by the forward thinking Arabarte winery, and headed up by two Masters of Wine. Fruit for this Rioja (100% Tempranillo) is sourced primarily from old bush-vines grown on the slopes of the Cantabrian mountains in the Rioja Alavesa that range in age from 30 up to 90 years old. Sixty per cent of the blend spent 4 months in French oak barrels - 2/3 new and 1/3 second use - the second use barrels were purchased from the esteemed Bordeaux estate Château Margaux and actually contained the wine of Château Margaux just 18 months beforehand! The remaining 40% is unoaked. Cantor Rojo is a delicious, easy-drinking, modern version of Rioja with plenty of bright cherry fruit, cinnamon spice and a creamy lick of vanilla from the four months spent in oak.
