Front and back


The Telmo Rodríguez Wine Company is renowned for making wines solely from native varieties, for reclaiming forgotten vineyards (such as its projects in Málaga and Cebreros) and for championing tradition, the heritage of the past, coming up with delightful, easy-drinking wines, with the large majority very reasonably priced. It offers us Corriente as its version of a traditional everyday wine, upholding the claim that wine is an everyday food and showing support for locally-grown wine.

In character, Corriente is a little rustic, but expressive and good quality, well-made. It's a Picota cherry colour, with a slightly earthy hue on the rim, surely due to the Garnacha; three of the native Rioja varieties partake in its making: Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano, sourced from Lanciego vine growers, and used casks and barrels made of both American and French oak participate in its ageing.

Soon after opening, some vegetal notes are apparent, which quickly blend in, and without being very intense, it reveals great fruit (red), yet given a boost by some very refreshing notes of black pepper and laurel, dusty hints, the odd sweet touch of black liquorice and an undertone of really smooth creamy coffee; a dash of alcohol comes over at first, which endorses its rusticity. Best open it an hour beforehand, uncork and leave it on the table, while you prepare the meal, and you'll find that it settles down.

It's fresh on the palate, fairly dry but juicy too, light-bodied, pleasant and easy to drink, with an extremely subtle bitter undertone that lengthens its persistence, without being troublesome. Another honest wine always to have at hand; and if you haven't finished it by the end of lunch or dinner, put the same cork back in, keep it in a cool place and you'll find you can enjoy it the next day, as it's a quality wine and has good acidity.

Rioja, Spain

A strong tradition of vine-growing, formal training in Bordeaux and great passion for wine might broadly define this “company” set up by Telmo Rodríguez (with experience, apart from in several Bordeaux châteaux, in the family-owned winery at Remelluri) and Pablo Eguzkiza (a pupil of Jean Claude Berrouet, at such...
