This Weekend's Pick

Wine of the Weekend

Hoya de Cadenas Reserva Tempranillo

Are you ready for the “The Big Game”, a.k.a. the Rihanna concert on Sunday? Have you picked your game-day wine yet? No, Super Bowl Sunday is not traditionally a wine event, but we are working to change that! This year we are pouring Hoya de Cadenas Reserva Tempranillo, which is just the right match for all of our favourite snacks. It’s also $1.50 off right now, so game on!

Tasting Notes: 100% Tempranillo, Hoya de Cadenas Reserva bursts with red and black stone-fruits like cherries and plums as well as touches of spice, cedar and vanilla from aging in American oak barrels. It is round and plush on the palate with great acidity to balance the solid fruit core.

Enjoy With: Nachos, chicken wings, sliders and sausages. The fruit and spice profile of Hoya de Cadenas is a great match for each. Keep going and bring on the ribs or brisket too!

Style: A dry, medium-bodied, smooth red wine.

Terroir/Region: Based in the Utiel-Requena DO region of Spain, the Hoya de Cadenas winery lies just outside the city of Valencia. The estate’s vineyards run up the slopes of the Sierra de la Bicuerca and the elevation helps cool the vines and drain excess rainwater, pushing them to grow intensely flavoured berries which result in intensely flavoured wines!

Producer: Hoya de Cadenas employs environmentally friendly techniques to grow its vines, benefitting the wines and the land. The winery carefully acts to prevent soil erosion and exhaustion and uses a computerized irrigation system which activates only when the vines really need water.

AvailabilityHoya de Cadenas Reserva is available online and in the Spain section of your local LCBO. Shop before February 26 to save $1.50. Enjoy the game!
