Las Huertas (Los Vascos) Grande Reserve 2015, three bottle case

£55.50 £39.95

The Las Huertas Grande Reserve label is produced for on-trade sales in the UK. Despite the label differing slightly visually, the wine is exactly the same as Los Vascos Grande Reserve. Waddesdon imports Los Vascos directly from the estate, therefore we thankfully have access to the Las Huertas range when stocks of the Los Vascos label run dry. Having stocked the 2015 Grande Reserve a few years back it is really exciting to see how it has evolved in the bottle – and evolved it certainly has! This Cabernet based blend was selected from old vines on the estate and has been matured in French oak. The parcel selection of old vines coupled with expert winemaking, have contributed to this fabulously complex vintage.

Tasting notes

Many people who acquire Los Vascos Grande Reserve sadly do not get to experience it at full maturity. This is a rare chance to purchase an older vintage that is in a wonderful place, balancing maturity and freshness. Straight from the glass it shows a peppery earthy character then moves towards prunes and cocoa. After an hour in a decanter it is much more fruit driven with blackberry and black cherry, wrapped around tobacco, mint, leather and earthy spice. The palate is dry with fine tannins and an elegant medium bodied texture; the finish offers lots of spice and earthy maturity. This is a layered vintage that evolves beautifully over the course of the evening. Serve with a dish rich in protein.
