Rulei Viña El Moral Viñedo Singular

RULEI VIÑA EL MORAL
Singular Vineyard 2018

Viña El Moral comes from a vineyard of more than 100 years classified as Singular Vineyard by the Ministry of Agriculture and the Regulatory Council of Rioja.

“Rulei Viña El Moral is a demonstration of the uniqueness of the high-altitude vineyards in the Najerilla valley, which historically specialised in Garnacha vines, though they are now all but abandoned.
A very intense nose of black fruit and liquorice with pencil and mint. This is a future icon, which has amazing density, a distinctive identity, and a deep, mult-layered fruit expression. Restrained finish. An unforgettable wine.”

"Juicy, sweet tannins, round, and very well loaded with ripe fruits.
Pleasant and with potential. Lots of flavour. I like its style, and it maintains fabulous acidity and a very sweet texture. Bravo for this Singular Vineyard."
