La Viña de Andres is a 3.5 ha contiguous riverside plot planted by Benjamin’s father, after whom it is named. The vines here are planted in clay over a limestone subsoil, freedraining as a result of alluvial deposits of rounded pebbles. From this site, a serious, intense, complex Rioja is fashioned, which is simultaneously fresh and pure.
"This is a jet-shot plum ruby in colour, almost opaque. The nose is lovely, very pure, a melange of red fruit, bramble and black cherry which achieve a crescendo of freshness and vitality – enticing. The palate is orchestral in its complexity – vivid high notes of pure fruit allied to darker, brooding savoury elements, all punctuated by minerals and herbs. Powerful and harmonious, supported by deft, sprightly tannins, this is liquid decadence – a beautiful wine which is tempting even in this embryonic state. "
