The La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 2015 is aged for four years in oak barrels before bottling and is an elegant garnet colour in the glass. A complex nose with notes of wild strawberry, red cherry, plum, blackberry, and cranberry combine with aromas of tobacco, cedar and caramel. The palate is refined with gentle tannins, wonderful freshness and a long aftertaste. This wine has brilliant cellaring potential.
Formed by five families in the late 19th century, the La Rioja Alta S.A. winery has been among the leading producers who have helped to establish and maintain the classic standards of Rioja. Their Tempranillo-led Gran Reservas, aged for remarkably long periods in barrels from the producer’s cooperage, are some of the most sought-after wines from the region. And while they always upheld standards and tradition, La Rioja Alta S.A. never stopped experimenting and pushing for better quality, offering some of the purest, most precise expressions of Tempranillo in the world.
