Review:

MacRobert & Canals has arisen from the intention to produce artisanal wines in La Rioja which reflect the landscape in every glass. Its founder, Bryan MacRobert, a South African by birth, was brought up among vineyards and studied viticulture and oenology. He spent many years travelling from Swartland in South Africa to the Priorat, learning how to understand vineyards and make unique wines. He gradually became won over by Rioja wines and began to look for vineyards in that vicinity. He found a very special spot in Logroño and decided to start up his own venture there: Laventura Wines.

He began, as usual, by concentrating his main efforts on the vineyard, cultivating the land according to organic principles and giving it his full attention. His intervention regarding the plants is limited to the strictly necessary and his respect for the environment is uncompromising. In the winery, he works with large-size barrels and materials that show due consideration to the grape, such as concrete, which enable him to preserve the fruit's aromatic purity. Thanks to his hard work, some very special wines have ensued, with a strong personality and sensational elegance.

The Laventura Tempranillo is basically made from Rioja Alavesa Tempranillo grapes, to which is added a small amount of Garnacha from the other two Rioja sub-zones. The 40 year-old bush vines produce exceptional fruit which, after fermenting in open tanks, is aged in 500-litre barrels. In the glass, it gives off an intoxicating aroma, a mixture of smoke, strawberries and pepper. You can smell the earth and woods; it has a juicy palate and vibrant acidity. It continues developing in the glass (perhaps it might be a good idea to decant it) and, after some subtle bitter touches, hints of liquorice and blue flowers emerge. Enveloping, extremely pleasant, and different from the more normal Rioja style. You can drink it now, but it will carry on evolving in the bottle.

A bit not a typical Rioja wine. This might come from the use of Grenache or mixture of the varieties. Technically well balanced table wine, although does not have the character of classical or modern Rioja wines.
