Rødvin – Helflaske 75cl. Leveres i originale trækasser á 6 flasker
La Rioja Alta er startet helt tilbage i 1890.
La Rioja Alta er ikke kun i den absolutte top når det kommer til Rioja, men de er den absolutte top.
De frembringer Rioja-vine i den klassiske stil, der går mere på elegance end på stor fed sort frugt.
Deres vine scorer ofte top-karakterer hos Parker og vinene har et enormt potentiale til et ikke bare langt liv, men et meget langt liv.
Dette er en vinoplevelse man absolut ikke må snyde sig selv for, La Rioja Alta SKAL opleves.

“2001 is a great vintage for all the wines from La Rioja Alta but the long-awaited 2001 Gran Reserva 890 is otherworldly. 2001 was a slow maturing vintage which produced smaller grapes especially in the old vineyards on the slopes of the Sierra Cantabria in the villages of Brinas, Labastida and Villalba where the vineyards that make it into this wine are located. The final blend contains a majority of Tempranillo with 3% Graciano and 2% Mazuelo. The wine ferments with the natural yeasts attached to the grapes in stainless steel vats and is aged for six years in used American oak barrels with 12 manual rackings. A selection of the best barrels were blended together and bottled unfiltered in March 2008. Only 15,000 bottles were produced. It shows (even) younger and more concentrated than the 2004 904, a darker shade of red and a somehow backward and reticent nose (relatively speaking) of forest floor, cold bonfire, antique shop, truffles, game, sandalwood, nutmeg and clove. The fruit is also a little darker and the palate more austere, but still showing vibrant and supple, with clean flavors and a great finish. This is my favorite modern time 890. Bravo!”

“Firm and polished, this red is a lovely example of the traditional style, with tea, tobacco and sanguine notes framing a core of dried cherry, orange peel and spice. Fresh, focused and long. Drink now through 2021.”
