Description

La Rioja Alta Viña Alberdi Reserva 2015

La Rioja Alta Viña Alberdi Reserva is a classic Crianza of Rioja and the baby of the bodega.

Clean and bright ruby red colour with a pink rim. Raspberries, wild strawberries, red cherries and red plums dominate the nose before it opens to secondary layers of vanilla, caramel, coffee, tobacco and leather. On the palate it is smooth and balanced with friendly tannins and a lively acidity. Flavour-packed in every sip with flavours of red fruit jam, prunes, coffee, vanilla and caramel. The finish is pleasant and fresh.

100% Tempranillo. From La Rioja’s Mayorita, Rebollar and Bardal vineyards, as well as selected
plots in El Palo, Rodezno and Alto del Rey, Labastida. The vineyards have an altitude of 500–600 metres, chalky-clay soils and vines over 40 years old.

After hand-picking, the grapes are transported refrigerated to the winery. Destemming and crushing follows, then the grapes go through alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in controlled conditions. Ageing for 2 years in American oak barrels: the first year in new oak and the second year in four-year-old barrels. The wine then goes through 4 rackings in the traditional way (under candlelight and moving from barrel to barrel) to carefully separate the wine from the dregs. Bottled in September 2018.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Lively aromas of wild raspberries, cherry and red currants interplay with cedar spice and tobacco leaves. This has a soft, plush, medium-weight body with fine-grained tannins and a snap of tart cherry fruit on the mid-palate. Sweet oak spice carries through to a fine finish.
