The Oddbins Take

These wines are named for Don José Fernando de Abascal y Sousa, 1st Marqués de la Concordia, the 25th Viceroy of Peru... Perhaps in the name of brevity we should refer to him as Jo from this point forward. Jo spent 10 years running Peru but it wasn't all llama sanctuaries and selfies up Machu Picchu, o no. During his time, he was captured by the British after his release there were 2 earthquakes, a tsunami, a hurricane, the great fire of Guayaquil which destroyed half of Lima and a small pox epidemic. Jo probably wished he stayed in Madrid. This didn't seem to deter him though; he still managed to build medical facilities, promote educational reforms, reorganize the army and promote harmony between Latin-American and Spanish citizens. Very much like this wine actually; from the arid Spanish temperatures and unruly bush vines a wine with elegance and balance emerges.

    Marqués de la Concordia make wine as noble as their name. Their Riojas are classically sumptuous, their range of Cava’s are modern, delicate but with an intensity that makes those in Reims & Epernay quake in 'leurs bottes.'

    As the official wine of the Spanish National Football team, we have a feeling Marqués de la Concordia may replicate La Furia Roja’s renown.
