    Rioja is Spain’s fine wine capital, a region characterised by rich tradition and innovation for over a century and a half.  Its high-altitude, clay/limestone soils and continental climate provide perfect conditions for growing fine wine.  The red wines are a blend of grapes, mainly Tempranillo and Garnacha (grenache) with others playing a supporting role such as Graciano, Marzullo (carignan) and even some white varieties.  Traditionally red Rioja wine is fermented fast and then matured in old American oak barrels.  A wonderful variety of styles are produced and the quality hierarchy is based on the amount of oak ageing, Crianza, the youngest aged wines, followed by reserva and gran reserva at the top.  The Spanish, unlike the French, do the ageing for you before the wine is released!

    Founded in 1972, Bodegas LAN lies in the heart of Rioja Alta.  The name LAN comes from the initials of the three provinces of the Rioja Designation of Origin: Logroño, Álava and Navarra.  Viña Lanciano is Bodegas LAN’s flagship vineyard in Rioja Alta and it is arguably one of Rioja’s finest single-vineyard sites. A meander of the River Ebro surrounds the vineyard and creates the perfect microclimate for the vines which are up to 60 years of age. The Riojas produced from grapes grown here are powerful, perfumed and beautifully balanced.

    This wine is bright crimson in colour with purple hues. Elegant aromas of ripe red and black fruits, liquorice and sweet spice are combined with a smokiness from the oak and earthy, leathery aromas from the bottle age.  The palate is silky and elegant, showcasing ripe fruits and finely integrated tannins. This is a remarkable Rioja with wonderful elegance and finesse.

    Taste Profile of this Wine

    The Winecroft Wine Style Meter is a key tool to match you with the wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test.

    The needle shows the style of the wine:

    • Light: These are delicate wines which are easy to drink.  Whites will be dry, crisp and zesty.  Reds will be paler in colour with lighter tannins (tannins create a drying sensation in your mouth).
    • Medium-bodied: These wines offer up loads of fruit flavours with a balance of zesty acidity and tannins (in the reds).
    • Full-bodied: Red will be bigger, bolder and have higher levels of tannin. Whites will be rich and creamy,

    The Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine based on your personal wine profile.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.

     

    Wines each month

    Each month we will recommend 4 superb new wines to try, individually matched to your latest taste profile. As a new Winecroft member, you will receive these 4 wines, delivered to your door.  In subsequent months, you will have full control over the wines you receive. You may find your wine preferences evolve over time, you would prefer more red than white, or you decide last month’s recommended wines weren’t quite right for you. In which case, you can update your taste profile and change or add to the recommended wines each month. And if you enjoyed one of the bottles so much, you can always order more.  You may, on the other hand, find you are just too busy to think about it, in which case you can opt to receive the wines hand-picked for your profile.

    The one thing that won’t change is that our members will always be drinking top-end wines that are on wine lists of the world’s best restaurants, for typically less than a third of the price.

    (Quick note – for new members who have just made your first order, when you look at your order details you will see next month’s recommendation.  Initially, this will contain the same wines as your first order but don’t worry, the Winecroft team will be working behind the scenes to quickly update this with 4 great new recommended wines based on your profile.)
