Rioja, Vina Illusion (Rioja, Spain)

Sold out.

A stunning unoaked organic Rioja from cult winemaker Martín Alonso.

Martín Alonso is the notoriously stubborn winemaker who famously uses the Japanese teachings of Masanobu Fukuoka, the pioneer of “do-nothing” natural farming.

They do not plough their 5 hectares of 20 year old vines, preferring to plant cover crops beneath the rows, and are certified organic, one of the only producers in Rioja to be certified.

Notes of olives, leather and plenty of ripe black fruits. This is Rioja as it should be – and it's also certified organic!" –  Dawn Davies, Master of wine

Old school Joven Rioja with very little Sulphur.
