Wine pairing for a Tortilla Campera

The pairing wine suggested for the Tortilla Campera was a Lopez de Haro 2015, from La Rioja.

With a blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Graciano, this lovely wine is produced in an area located on the slopes of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in the North of La Rioja, close to the border with the Basque Country, known as “Rioja alavesa”.

It is gently rounded, delightful and expressive. The wine undergoes the classic Rioja ageing period of 18 months with 50% French oak and 50% American oak. This beautiful cherry red wine has delicate ripe red fruit aromas. It’s a beautifully smooth and expressive wine and well balanced.

It will make a very pleasant accompaniment to the tortilla campera because it is very easy to drink smooth wine.
