Luscious Teja Roja, or 'Tile Red', is made purely from Tempranillo, the prized grape of Rioja renowned for its gorgeous, silky, summer berry fruit. That's just what you'll find in this red, crafted by Martínez Bujanda - a bodega famous for quality.
Third generation Martínez Bujanda is one of the top producers in Rioja, renowned all over the world. The family business was founded late in the 19th century, but was transformed in 1984 when the Bujanda brothers built an ultra modern facility that is still one of the finest in Europe. Every year their wines win many awards and they have been listed Top Spanish bodega and among the top 50 wineries in the world many times. We were delighted, therefore, when Jesús offered us this great value, characterful and deliciously easy Tempranillo packed with silky strawberry flavour - the sort of wine the locals prefer to keep for themselves. A lovely red to sip with friends on its own or alongside a range of tapas, chicken or garlic mushrooms.
