2018 La Rioja Alta Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva

£25.00

100% Tempranillo from La Rioja Alta's own Mayorita, El Bardal and El Rebollar vineyards in Rodezno, and Alto del Rey in Labastida.

These sites lie at 500-600 metres above sea level and the vines were planted on clay/limestone soils more than 40 years ago.

This wine was aged for two years in American oak barrels. New for the first year and four-year-old barrels in the second year.

Tasting Note: Bright, deep ruby colour with dark cherry hues on the rim of the glass. It stands out for its intensity, with red fruit aromas (strawberries, raspberries, redcurrant and cherry) leading to elegant notes of vanilla, toffee, coffee cream, cinnamon, brioche and hazelnuts. The balance between acidity and alcohol stands out on the palate, with soft, sweet, rounded tannins and a pleasant final sensation. 

Origin: Rioja, Spain

Alcohol: 14.5%

Blend: Tempranillo
