Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva 2018

The Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva, from the La Rioja Alta stable, is 100% Tempranillo from the Mayorita, Rebollar and Bardal vineyards, as well as selected plots in El Palo, Rodezno and Alto del Rey, Labastida. These vineyards are located at an altitude of 500-600 metres (1600-2000 ft) above sea level, planted more than 40 years ago. The wine was aged for two years in American oak barrels manufactured in house; the first year in new oak and the second in barrels averaging three years in age. The wine displays high aromatic intensity with dominating ripe fruit: raspberries, red cherries, wild strawberries and red currants set out against a balsamic background of vanilla, toasted caramel, biscuits, coffee and sweet mints. The palate offers great freshness and balance with well balanced tannins with notes of red fruit jam, prunes, coffee, vanilla and caramel.

Highly recommendable

Lovely wine, full of flavour, very lengthy on the palette. Notes of vanilla, leather, raspberries and slightly smokey finish. The missus was raving about it, happy wife, happy life 😉

Great service from Hic, prompt delivery, well packaged...
