Acústic, has a profile pretty distinct from the typical Rioja; whereas the latter tends towards a big, bold, & spicier composition, the former is very earth focused, medium-bodied, & generally just more mild than its more famous counterpart. Though, that Acústic is more mild should not be taken to mean that it is at all basic, unimaginative or weak. Quite the opposite: the blend of 80% Carignan & 20% Grenache is bright, with delightful notes of blueberry & raspberry on the forefront, which mix well with the wines earthiness, which comes from the vineyards soil, rich in clay, sand, & slate. Top marks on the acidity & alas, not over extracted. Truly a distinct wine.
