With the barbecueing season now a-sizzle, you'll need sufficient stores of hearty Spanish reds to greet what's coming off the grill. For this, Sancho Garcés Crianza - an expressive, textured, barrel-aged tempranillo blend made from the regions finest vineyards in the heart of La Rioja Alta. So expressive, in fact, that Tim Atkin MW awarded their 2017 vintage as 'Best Value Red Rioja 2021' from among as many as 1,200 tasted.

Now you've got a glorious magnum of it, too. So get friends round quick and uncork the conviviality. For when burgers cannot be bettered - where sirloins are sublime.

Tasting note:
A classic crianza with flavours of fresh, lush berry fruits balanced with very well-judged use of oak. This wine doesn't exhibit powerful oak flavours but the barrel ageing lends the wine extra character, roundness and complexity, with flavours of cinnamon, exotic spice and wood smoke swirling around the generous red fruits.

Critic's review:
"Best value red of the year, a small coop in Uruñuela in the Rioja Alta... Sancho Garcés Crianza, Unbelievable and this is pure tempranillo FANTASTIC VALUE FOR MONEY..."
Tim Atkin MA (previous vintage).

About producer:
This range takes its name from Sancho Garcés, King of the Kingdom of Nájera (which incorporated part of the Rioja Alta and Rioja Media in the 10th century), in tribute to this outward-looking King, with these wines symbolising tradition and adaptation to modern times. This is also a recognition of his efforts to promote the Camino de Santiago, or Way of St. James, upon which huge numbers of travellers descend every year, also passing through La Rioja where they enjoy the hospitality of its people and its good wine.

Great value - we found it really benefits from aeration which transforms its taste on the palate, even better the following day, needs food to accompany as not really a quaffing wine.
Kevin Brown - November 2022
Very pleasant Rioja, extremely enjoyable and very much to our taste. Would recommend, we particularly enjoyed this wine with a charcuterie boad. (previous vintage)
