Viña Arana Rioja Gran Reserva 2014
“Old-fashioned Rioja at its glorious best.” – Tim Atkin MW
How something that has spent three years in oak and three years in the bottle can remain so fresh and vibrant is a mystery. But that’s what earned Viña Arana Rioja Gran Reserva 2014 its enormous score of 96 points from Decanter Magazine.
In 2014, La Rioja Alta didn’t make its top Gran Reservas 904 and 890, so all the best grapes went into Viña Arana, making it exceptional value in this vintage. This is traditional Rioja at its finest. Brimming with blackberry, raspberries, black cherry, plums, redcurrants, dried herbs, sweet cinnamon, vanilla, toasted coconut, cedar, tobacco, caramel macchiato, a splash of balsamic and freshly laid tarmac somewhere in the distance. It’s a spectacular blend of Tempranillo and Graciano from 40-year-old vines and every inch a classic. Wines don’t come much more giftable than this.
Formed in 1890 by three families – the Ardanzas, the Aranas and the Alberdis – La Rioja Alta sets the benchmark for the entire Rioja region. They're famed for their classic Spanish reds, which are aged for an inordinately long time, making them a go-to for all connoisseurs of Rioja.
