LA RIOJA ALTA Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva 2015 Half Bottle 375ml
93 points “Aromas of subtle red fruit with plums spice and cedar. Some dried flowers and dried spices such as paprika. It’s medium-bodied with some pretty ripe fruit in the centre palate fine tannins and a citrus and cedar undertone to the finish.” – James Suckling
Pure Tempranillo. Pure pleasure. Displaying sweet coconut vanilla wild flowers spiced caramel smoke balsamic and chocolate-covered coffee beans layered over wild strawberries plums blackcurrants and raspberries this silky little number is just the thing to slip into after a long day.
It was crafted using grapes sourced from old vineyards spread throughout Rioja in a cooler and wetter vintage that yielded fresher reds. The wine was then filled into American oak barrels that were manufactured by the winery’s own coopers where it remained for two years before being bottled. Too often overlooked within the stunning La Rioja Alta range this wine is a stone-cold classic that sits comfortable with everything from barbeques to Sunday roasts and from creamy cheese sauces to tomato-based pasta.
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.
