Sold Out

Charlatans would have you believe that the best gifts come in small packages. It’s a lie perpetuated by the miniature gift box industry, the mainstream media refuse to blow the whistle, pockets lined as they are, and this trail of dirty miniature gift box money flows all the way the top! O yes, call it a conspiracy if you wish but we believe parliament has had a piece of this pie!

No longer, we’re calling it as it is! You know what’s better than a bottle of exceptional Reseva Rioja, with aromas of blackberries, cedar, leather and spices? One that is twice as large of course! It’s time for action, let us all come together, magnums in hand and march on city hall, demanding they acknowledge that big is sometimes better!
Bodegas Ramon Bilbao was founded in 1924 by Ramon Bilbao Murga in Haro. He was an experienced wine trader and a pioneer in the art of ageing. The winery stayed family owned until 1966 when Ramon Bilbao Pozo, last of the descendants, died. In 1999 the winery was acquired by the family business of Diego Zamora, one of the largest beverage group in Spain. the winery got renovated, with new facilities and top-quality wines were produced thanks to a great combination of innovation and tradition of la Rioja Alta. Ramon Bilbao produces fruit driven styles as well as oaky wines, coming from the best estates and vineyard and with oak barrels from the best oak from European and American forests. Ramon Bilbao has been awarded the Best Spanish Winey prize in 2014 by the IWSC.

Fermentation takes place in steel tanks where temperatures go up to 28 -29º and quick devatting, once the colour extraction (tannins and anthocyanins) is at the optimum level. 25% of the wine is aged for 12 months in 4-year-old American oak casks. The wine is ruby red in colour, with a moderate to high colour intensity. Clean, bright wine with evident tears. The nose is clean, with highly intense aromas and rich in nuances. Notes of red and black fruit, hints of liquorice, menthol aromas balanced with aromas from the barrel-ageing process (biscuit, nutmeg, cinnamon).
