Rioja 10 x 10 tasting 2016 highlights
After a very successful launch last year, Rioja 10 x 10 returned for a second year to Banking Hall on 11th October 2016. Visitors from the trade were the first to taste this year’s top 100 Rioja wines – blind-tasted and selected from over 400 entrants by an expert panel back in August, chaired by Tim Atkin MW and Sarah Jane Evans MW.
It was a great event full of members of the UK wine trade, excited to taste this year’s diverse line-up of Rioja wines. Alongside the official tasting, attendees also took part in a blind tasting competition.
This year’s wines were selected from the following categories:
· Unoaked whites
· Oaked whites
· Reservas 2009 and before
· Reservas 2010 and later
· Gran Reserva
· Reds from non-Tempranillo varieties
· Generic wines over £15
· Chair’s Choice (wines selected by Tim Atkin MW and Sarah Jane Evans MW)
