A few months ago, we introduced you to Carlos Serres 5 Barricas Reserva 2014 and members’ response was unmistakeable: this Rioja became one of the bestsellers of the Shoulder to Shoulder initiative. In view of its success, we agreed to repeat the experience with the winery, this time with the 2016 vintage.

It’s more than 16 years since Carlos Serres last used the ‘5 Barricas Reserva’ brand – for a top-of-the-range wine that was produced exclusively for the winery’s VIP customers for a long time. Bodegas Carlos Serres have now generously brought out this label again, exclusively for Vinoselección, for a wine which, as its name indicates, is made solely from the contents of 5 selected barrels.

This brand, exclusive to Vinoselección, offers the best of the 2016 vintage from the Carlos Serres winery. Grown on vineyards on the 60-hectare El Estanque estate, Carlos Serres 5 Barricas Reserva 2016 is a fine, elegant red that reflects the Atlantic character and the personality of the historical terroir of Haro in the heart of Rioja. It’s made entirely from Tempranillo grapes and has been barrel aged for about 16 months.
