The Reserve of the Bodegas Ramón Bilbao has been awarded for its high quality in competitions such as Bacchus Awards, Mundus Vini and Decanter World Wine Awards. It is a blend of three grape varieties - Tempranillo Riojano, Graciano, Mazuelo - which well represents the land from which it comes, the prestigious region of Rioja.
The 2015 is remembered as one of the earliest and fastest harvests in the history of Ramón Bilbao. The winter was characterized by abundant rain and snowfall, which created important water reserves. The cool spring, then, favoured a good budding and the growth of more bunches, even if with smaller than average berries. Summer, on the other hand, brought strong heat waves and very high temperatures, which cooled down in September. The harvest ended on October 17.
This red wine brings those who drink it to live a unique moment, to stop in time, to travel through the history, traditions and landscapes of one of the most important wine-growing areas of Spain. As its creators described it, "it is a wine that reflects the knowledge and taste of the Rioja Alta.
