La Rioja Alta Discovery Gift Box 3 x 750ml
Formed in 1890 by several families, La Rioja Alta sets the benchmark for the entire Rioja region and have now spread their work into Ribera del Duero and Rías Baixas. This beautiful – almost Alphonse Mucha-esque – retro wooden case explores some of their classic wine, as well as some of their newer ventures.
The first wine is the Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva 2012 – a model Spanish Tempranillo named after one of the founding families of La Rioja Alta and awarded 92 points by Tim Atkin MW. Next up, there’s a pure Tempranillo from a single vineyard, Torre de Oña Finca San Martín Rioja Crianza 2014, which was described as “hitting it on all cylinders” and “truly delicious” by Wine Advocate. Fermented with indigenous yeast, this is a vibrant and very modern style Rioja. And finally, we have the Lagar de Cervera Albariño 2017. In the late 1980s, La Rioja Alta made a decision to stop making white Rioja and instead bought a vineyard in Galicia and created this wonderfully aromatic Albariño. Packed with citrus, quince and orchard fruits, it has become a classic and this vintage was described as “one of the best Albariños on the market” by The Sunday Times.
So as you can see, there’s a lot to uncover in the La Rioja Alta Discovery Gift Box.
