El Domador del Fuego Rioja Reserva 2011 in Gift Box

The Fire Tamer!

El Domador, literally translates into The Fire Tamer but are they referring to the wine, or the hot conditions in which the grapes grow? Luckily for us, it’s the later and the result is a delicious, balanced and complex Rioja Reserva. Tempranillo is picked from vines which are up to 50 years old, fermented, and then the juice spends a year in barrel before being aged for a few years in bottle prior to release. Typical varietal flavours like plum and raspberry, vanilla and spice are all layered together in the glass - pair it with something meaty to get the full Spanish experience.
