2007 Vina Ardanza Reserva La Rioja Alta



The 2007 Vina Ardanza from La Rioja Alta offers “great value for money” (Luis Gutierrez). An excellent wine from a brilliant Spanish producer, this is a classic example of the best Rioja has to offer.

 

La Rioja Alta is an outstanding Rioja producer. Luis Gutierrez is a huge fan of their wines, calling them: “Great Rioja, as traditional as it gets, in good quantity and moderate (and often plain great) prices.” With 94 points and such a low price, this 2007 is a absolutely prime example.

 

A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha, maturated in American oak barrels for up to 36 months before blending and bottling in 2011. The result is a classic Rioja both for drinking and with great ageing potential. For any fan of the region, it’s a very compelling buy.

“The nose is very fresh, with notes of beef blood, iron, cherries in liqueur, some subtle leather and spices plus notes of autumn forest and truffles. The palate is more lively and has some tannins that would feel better integrated with some food or a little bit of time in bottle It was bottled in November 2011. This will be released around September/October 2015, so by the time it hits the shelves it will be more polished. Great value for money.” Feb 2015, www.erobertparker.com, Drink 2016-2027
