(2011 Vintage) La Vendimia, meaning "the harvest,” represents the quality potential of Spanish jovens - wines that have been aged for less than six months in oak barrels. Made by famed Spanish winemaker, Alvaro Palacios, La Vendimia is a blend of Spain’s two original star varieties: Tempranillo and Garnacha. Lively and pleasing on the palate, it has delicious aromas of fresh berries, red flowers and ripe orchard fruit with hints of sweet spice. Meant to drink now through the next four years, this enjoyable wine can be served slightly chilled and is the perfect accompaniment to any dish.
