La Rioja Alta Viña Ardanza Reserva 2015

Rioja DOC

With 96 Suckling points, Viña Ardanza is one of the best releases of this excellent, cooler vintage. Made very traditionally by the legendary La Rioja Alta, it’s a mesmirising wine every vintage. With long ageing in barrel, the wine is very complex.

La Rioja Alta has been a pioneering bodega since it was founded in 1890. It excels by applying traditional winemaking techniques in its state-of-the-art, purpose-built cellar. In the excellent 2015 vintage the winemaker added a portion of Garnacha from the La Pedriza vineyard. This beautifully complements the richly layered Tempranillo, sourced from the estate’s 30-year-old vines, set at 600-metres altitude. All grapes – Tempranillo and Garnacha – were harvested by hand prior to careful, temperature-controlled fermentation. This was followed by four years’ ageing in American oak casks made on the estate’s century old cooperage. Only released 6 years after vintage, it’s beginning to drink well – a classic with lamb. Open early and decant.

"Creamy, balanced and layered with vibrant, spicy character. Long and polished" James Suckling
