The Oddbins Take

Drinking icon wines is a disorientating experience, you spend so much time hearing these names that changed the wine world, that you assume they exist in another dimension where fruit tastes sweeter, colours are brighter, and bacon constitutes one of your 5 a day. But then you get a chance to try one and it’s like discovering Sir Ian McKellen visits the same dry cleaners as you; legends made manifest.


Vega-Sicilia is such a producer, the driving force behind the renown of Ribera Del Duero. The Valbuena is 100% Tinto Fino, with incredible elegance and intensity this wine is expressive of violets and roses overlaying bright red fruit and notes of smoked cedar. The fruit freshness is beginning to evolve into complex aged characters of game, leather and mocha that all combine to give a long and uncompromising finish.
