Reviews and Accolades

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Decanter Magazine

This young wine is made from a blend of Garnacha and Tempranillo grapes, with no oak used. Sarah Jane Evans MW: Deliciously cherry nose: the joys of stainless steel in allowing the fruit to sing through. A plump, juicy mid-palate, refreshed by an overcoat of bright acidity, and a light tannin grip to finish. Diana Rollan: Fresh, juicy and vibrant, plenty of red fruit, light and easy to drink. Nice pure style. Beth Willard: Pretty nose with delicate red cherry and rose petal, fresh and lively. Lovely balance with sweet red fruits and a touch of black pepper on the crunchy finish.

Ruiz Jimenez

Ruiz Jimenez is a family winery in the heart of Rioja, opened its doors in 1998 with a singular vision, to craft the finest wine that this land can offer while steadfastly adhering to organic and sustainable principles. This commitment was groundbreaking in its time, met with skepticism by the local farmers. As the years have passed, their dedication has borne fruit, and today, they proudly create some of the finest wines in Rioja. Their vineyard is more than a mere plot of land; it's a haven, enveloped by forests and pine trees, providing natural protection from treatments applied by other vinegrowers. The landscape is a thriving ecosystem, offering shelter to migrating birds, a refuge for wild creatures. Inside their cellar, a symphony unfolds as around 700 barrels age gracefully, awaiting their moment to be bottled and contribute their essence to the world. Ruiz Jimenez's journey is a testament to a resolute commitment to quality and sustainability, transcending labels and certifications, and allowing their wines to speak for themselves.
