Bodegas Guelbenzu Lombana
Guelbenzu’s history goes back to 1851, when it was reported that taxes were paid in demijohns of wine sold by Don Martín María Guelbenzu.
It was his son, Miguel Guelbenzu, who modernised and developed the winery, gaining significant awards in 1880 in the form of medals and accolades which were to form an integral part of the company’s image and to figure on the labels of its range of wines, as can still be seen today.
This red pairs well with Roasts and meats with intense flavour.
The nose is complex with hints of very ripe black fruits (blackberries), floral (violets) and vanilla paired with soft toasted notes of spice.
The palate is powerful with a good length of flavour and a lingering finish. Balanced, fresh and flavoursome with fruit notes coming through in the finish.
Previous vintages of this wine have won, Best value red wines from spain awards 2014 & Silver medal at the Somellier Wine Awards 2014.
Serve at 16 to 18°C.
