About the Wine

This red wine is made by Viña Pomal in Rioja. Mature, full-bodied Rioja is superb with roast or grilled lamb and beef, as well as autumnal dishes based around mushrooms or flavoursome wild game. It is created with mosty Tempranillo/Tinta Roriz/Aragonêz grapes. You shouldn't find this wine anywhere else, it is exclusive to Matthew Clark. Supplied by Codorniu International.
