A magnificent Rioja and one of the great wines from this famous Spanish region. The fine tobacco aroma and spicy oak supports the intense sweet fruit character of tempranillo, graciano and mazuelo. Aged for two years in barrel. Decant to drink now, or be patient!
A graceful, gratifying masterclass in traditional-style Rioja. Viña Ardanza has made multiple appearances on previous Wine Champions podiums, and the complex, vibrant, smoky and smooth 2012 was awarded the maximum score from all our tasters in 2021.
A special wine to match special times, this fully mature 2001 is a delicious ambassador for one of the best Rioja vintages in recent decades. Perfumed, smoky and mellow.
The classic Tondonia blend is 75% tempranillo with 15% garnacha and 10% graciano and mazuelo. The reserva spends six years in barrel (just one would satisfy the region’s regulations) and several more than the required two in bottle before release. The subtle, authentic, mellow and mahogany-coloured result is generous and appealing with smoky leathery flavours and a delicate texture.
One of the most stylish Rioja reservas from a single vineyard in the Alavesa. Pure and refined with spicy black fruit flavour and velvety structure. Decant a couple of hours before serving.
Arana has been upgraded to gran reserva with full justification given the superior fruit quality which brings freshness and intensity to the wine. The 2014 is a masterpiece combining elegance with complexity, where four years gentle ageing in barrel has enhanced the ripe red fruit of tempranillo.
