The Oddbins Take

This is the Big Papa of Spanish winemaking. There’s no messing around with new-fangled methods or bending to fickle fashion: La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva does what you would expect a classy Rioja to do and it does it with aplomb. Velvety soft, with pure, concentrated red fruits, balanced by the sumptuously leathery notes you’d expect from a Rioja of this pedigree. If you are going for a wine to drink in velvet slippers whilst blasting Beethoven and generally lording it up, this is that wine.

Founded in 1890, La Rioja Alta is continues to uphold its founding principle of crafting and ageing high quality wines and they have enormous respect for their history.

Brick red in colour, with iodine hints, it has intense, complex aromas of spices and minty chocolate on a background of plums, raisins and sugared fruit. On the palate it is fantastically well-balanced, with a good structure and highly polished, silky and elegant tannins. It has a complex after-taste with a gentle but very long-lasting finish.
