The bubbly German Blanco is head of the Milu winery in the heart of Ribera del Duero, northern Spain. He also has a project in nearby Rioja, which is where this beautiful, red fruited wine is from. La Bicicleta Voladora (‘the flying bicycle’) is a modern style of Rioja, less on the oak, more on the fruit. Think redcurrants, red cherries and nutmeg. The wine is made with very little manipulation or additions other than a tiny amount of sulphur at bottling.
Grape variety: Tempranillo
Winemaking method: Organic
