Carlos Rodriguez is, by any standards, a bit of a genius. He wanders through Rioja, acting as a consultant to various different wineries and in each one he sprinkles some of his magic dust and the results are, well, stunning.
So we thought it was a good idea to stick his four best Riojas, ranging from Joven up to Gran Reserva (with a declassified thrown in for good measure) all in the one perfect little taster pack. And here it is.
PLUS, as an added bonus, our Angels get an EXCLUSIVE discount meaning you can enjoy Carlos's talents for less!
What makes Carlos such a cracking winemaker for Naked is that he isn't tied to just one winery. Which means he can choose only the grapes that really get him all excited (in the pure wine sense that is).
It also allows him to bargain like crazy, which means you get top class Crianza for a decent price, delivering wonderful fresh strawberry fruits, with lovely young, vibrant creamy oak flavours guaranteed to get the tastebuds tingling.
Because Carlos works as consultant winemaker for several leading wineries, he has the pick of amazing grapes from all over Spain. And of course, he only picks the best! Which is why this cheeky little red is on our list.
Young, fruity and fresh, this tastes, literally, like a bowl of strawberries and cream. It is the veritable Little Black Dress of wine. Any place, any time, any occasion.
At this price you can afford to drink Morum every day. So you might as well start now!
At Naked Wines we define fine wines as wines that need more than one year from vine to table. This is a subject of very heated and earnest debate among wine enthusiasts, and every one of them seems to have their own definition. So we just picked the one that made the most sense to us!
In our humble opinion (and there are many who would disagree) fine wines are not NECESSARILY:
From classic regions like Bordeaux and Burgundy. Other less well known regions are capable of producing wines that blind taste tests rate as equivalent or even better than the classic regions.
Estate Wines. Many expensive wines source most of their grapes from independent growers.
In September 2013, we launched a Fine Wine Bond where we raised £5 million to invest in the 'top-end' stuff.
So we're well armed to take on the fine wine market with a bang - and our range of fine wines will be increasing over the next few months / years!
The bond offer is now closed, but we might run another issue in the future if there's enough interest…
Smart move - you've found the Sweet Spot
Here's a juicy little nugget of insider info…
When it comes to wine, a small step in price = a HUGE leap in quality and taste
By spending $11 - $15 for a bottle of wine, you're actually getting more than DOUBLE the quality of wine than a $8 - $10 bottle... pretty impressive huh?
Sound too good to be true? It's not. Here's how it works...
The first several bucks you pay for a bottle covers basics that don't make the wine taste any better (glass bottle, bottling, labeling, closure, etc). As the price of a bottle increases, more of your money goes towards the delicious juice in the bottle rather than dry goods, taxes, and other boring stuff that adds nothing to the taste.
So you get a LOT more bang for your buck
These Sweet Spot wines have benefited from the very best fruit picked from immaculate vineyards, oodles of TLC, and a lil' extra Angel-funding at every step of the winemaking process.
Pull yer socks up. Because if these Sweet Spot beauties don't blow 'em off I don't know what will
I guarantee our Sweet Spot wines will blow you away. If they don't, then I'll give you every single penny back. So you've really got nothing to lose.
