Bright, deep ruby colour with dark cherry hues on the rim of the glass. It stands out for its intensity, with red fruit aromas (strawberries, raspberries, redcurrant and cherry) leading to elegant notes of vanilla, toffee, coffee cream, cinnamon, brioche and hazelnuts. The balance between acidity and alcohol stands out on the palate, with soft, sweet, rounded tannins and a pleasant finish.
Producer Information: La Rioja Alta
Haro is the old capital of Rioja. The station is one of the great destinations for world wine lovers. Tondonia, Rioja Alta and Roda are all magical wineries, for different reasons, and all within a few metres of the line. Rioja Alta is famed for its vast collection of old bottles. It's a rare winery that can offer such beautiful reds that are ready for drinking. Look out for Gran Reservas 890 and 904, named after the year of foundation, 1890 and the year that Ardanza was acquired.
