The Winery

La Rioja Alta

La Rioja Alta

On July 10, 1890, five Basque and Rioja-based vine growers created "Sociedad Vinicola De La Rioja Alta" in what is known as the Haro Station District. This was the beginning of a fascinating business venture in which the only dream of the five founders was to craft and age high-quality wines.

Jag köpte den här på Uvinum.
Röd med lila kanter. Den har dofter som påminde mig om vita rosor. Det var minnesvärt.

En Rioja er best oppdage alene.
Rødfarget, litt mursteinfarget. Lukter mest av røde roser. Den Rioja Alta 890 Gran Res. er en vin med god syrlighet.
Kombiner denneRioja med pølser fra deres land.

3/5

Its colour didn't quite convince me, but it tasted really good. Tobacco aromas. Very balanced . The 2004 completely outshined the stew I had prepared.
I and my clients from Rioja tasted it together. I do not know whether I prefer this 2004 or the previous vintage.
