The term ‘Rioja Corriente’ was used in the early twentieth century by growers to refer to an everyday wine. Telmo’s version is elevated, of course, but that’s the idea – it’s meant to be drunk now and shared around for any occasion. The fruit is handpicked and comes from old unirrigated bush vines in Alavesa, the coolest of Rioja’s three sub-regions. It’s made at Telmo’s small gravity-flow winery in Lanciego that blends in with the landscape, surrounded by wild grasses. The wine is fermented with native yeast in steel and concrete vats and then is aged for 12 months in older barrels of varying size. This is fruit-driven with a touch of herbal complexity and full of energy.

5 Stars & 95/100 Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine (2016 Vintage)
"Combines tempranillo with graciano and garnacha. It has a beautiful fragrance, with sweet red fruits on the nose, and vanilla from well-managed oak. The ripe fruit and oak marry nicely on the palate, which finishes with balanced, firm tannins. "Big, ripe scents and flavours, but doesn't carry huge weight", thought (Mike) Bennie. "Sour-sweet cherry, pomegranate juice and a raft of sweet and savoury spice. A sumptuous feel in the palate. Long, soft and lovely to drink, but framed in a bigger spectrum of Rioja wine."

90/100 (2016 Vintage)
"Corriente is a tribute to an unofficial and traditional Rioja wine qualification from the early twentieth century. Winemaker /owner Telmo Rodríguez describes it as wine without pretence, “a wine that represents a region, its culture, and surely its wine.” This Rioja Alavesa blend is a mix of tempranillo, graciano, and garnacha grown by small, traditional suppliers, often in field blends, on bush vines, and is manually harvested in small boxes. The ferment is done with native yeasts; the ageing is in barrels and foudres of mixed ages. The result is an honest, gentle red, with an earthy plummy mineral bent with just the right squeeze of red fruit aromas and flavours. Like the last vintage, this is everyday red with extraordinary style."

90/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous (2016 Vintage)
"Deep ruby. Dark berry and cherry liqueur aromas are sharpened by smoky mineral and cracked pepper flourishes. Offers ripe blackberry, bitter chocolate and espresso flavours that show good depth and a slightly jammy quality. Supple tannins build on a long, spicy finish that leaves a bitter cherry pit note behind."

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
