Uncorking the Bodegas Paco Garcia Seis Rioja

The Seis, meaning "six" in Spanish, refers to the wine's six months of ageing in French oak barrels. This ageing process adds a touch of complexity to the Tempranillo grape's inherent fruitiness, creating a well-rounded and approachable Rioja.

On first pour, the Seis boasts a beautiful ruby red colour with garnet hues, hinting at the wine's youthful vibrancy. The nose is greeted by an explosion of aromas – think ripe red and black fruits like plums, cherries, and blackberries, interwoven with hints of spice, violets, and a touch of vanilla from the oak ageing.

A Sip of Sunshine: Tasting Notes

The first sip of the Seis is a delightful revelation. The wine has a medium body, offering a pleasing weight on the palate without feeling heavy. The fruit flavours from the nose translate beautifully, with a juicy core of black cherry and plum complemented by refreshing acidity. The oak influence is subtle, adding a touch of spice and vanilla that enhances the overall complexity without overpowering the fruit.

The tannins are fine-grained and approachable, creating a smooth and easy-drinking experience. The finish is lingering, leaving behind pleasant hints of fruit and spice that invite another sip.

Food Pairings for Every Plate

The beauty of the Bodegas Paco Garcia Seis Rioja lies in its versatility.  Here are some ideal food pairings to elevate your culinary experience:

  • Tapas & Pintxos: No Spanish wine is complete without mentioning tapas! The Seis pairs wonderfully with a variety of Spanish small plates. Try it with chorizo, jamón ibérico, grilled vegetables, or patatas bravas.
  • Pizza Night: Don't relegate Rioja to just traditional Spanish fare. The Seis's fruitiness and acidity stand up perfectly to the richness of tomato sauce and cheese on your favourite pizza.
  • Casual Weeknight Dinners: The Seis is a fantastic companion to a wide range of casual dishes. Enjoy it with pasta dishes in tomato or cream sauces, grilled chicken or sausages, or even a hearty lentil stew.
  • Cheese Platter Perfection: The Seis complements a cheese board beautifully. Opt for semi-hard cheeses like Manchego or Gouda, or try it with a creamy blue cheese for an interesting contrast.
