Jesús Madrazo Selección Rioja 2018

Jesús Madrazo Selección Rioja is a blend of Tempranillo (70%), Graciano (13%) and the local Maturana (17%) grape. The fruit is manually selected from 3 plots of fantastic 35-40 year-old vineyards, called Peña Escorpion and Palomares, which are located between Lapuebla and Laguardia in Rioja Alavesa. Following crushing and de-stemming, the must is fermented in stainless steel for 7 days and then enjoyed a further 10 more days of maceration. Malolactic Fermentation took place in large 500Ltr oak barrels (70% French, 15% American) and 15% Hungarian second-use 225Ltr barrels for 25 days, followed by 17 months of ageing in those same 500L and 225L oak barrels with periodic racking. This vintage of Selección combines elegance and power due to its aromatic intensity, with a lot of ageing potential, sage, thyme, rosemary, peppers, freshness, good acidity and time to age.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
