Viñas Riojanas, "La Chaya" Red Blend
Origin: Riojana, Argentina
Producer's Notes: This wine has an intense, concentrated aroma of ripe red fruit which is complemented by attractive violet, plum, berry and hazelnut flavours. This is the perfect partner for lamb chops, tomato based pasta dishes, in particular spaghetti bolognaise.
The reference to La Chaya relates to an annual celebration, peculiar to La Rioja province, where local people dress up as devil’s and celebrate "La Pachamama" (Mother Earth) by throwing flour and water, dancing, eating and drinking lots of wine long into the night.
