A 5-star vintage, a bodega of real pedigree and grapes from premium Alavesa – this Rioja Reserva has it all. We can’t reveal the great family name behind it – part of the hush hush deal – but you can be assured of a superbly complex, long aged Rioja.
The Seleccíon Numerada range promises small one-off parcels of outstanding quality wine at a great value price. This Reserva comes from a top Rioja family estate. Whilst we can't reveal the winery’s name, we can tell you that it was listed as one of the 5 Best Rioja Houses in the last 25 years. They have estate vineyards across all three Rioja sub-regions. This particular parcel comes from Rioja Alavesa, which is widely considered to produce the finest wines. High altitude and cooling Atlantic breeze slow down ripening, increasing the berries depth of flavour, and their ageing potential. Matured for 19 months in American oak barrels and the rest in bottle, this complex Reserva has layers of ripe berry fruit, spice box and toasty vanilla.
"Seductively silky, long and complex Reserva Rioja, with elegant maturity. Decant before drinking"
Jean-Marc Sauboua Buyer for Spain
