Discover More About Our Products

The Tempranillo (78%) comes from 30-year-old vines and the Garnacha (22%) comes from La Pedriza vineyard in Tudelilla (Rioja Oriental). This 70-hectare property offers unbeatable conditions for growing this variety. Its nutrient-poor soil, covered with boulders, results in great varietal typicity, rich in aromas, with a pleasant, elegant structure.

Description of Viña Ardanza Reserva 2012

Viña Ardanza Reserva 2012 (Garnacha and Tempranillo)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Outstandingly bright, lively and intense garnet red.
  • Nose: The first nose is very intense, with spicy, balsamic and ripe fruit notes. After swirling, aromas of black pepper, sweet liquorice, nutmeg, coffee, vanilla and cinnamon make their appearance.
  • Mouth: Deep flavours with a pleasant acidity and balance, and very polished tannins that enhance the harmonious structure. Complex and elegant after-taste with spicy and balsamic hints. Can be enjoyed right now, but has a long life ahead of it if you choose to age it.

APPELLATION: Rioja

VINEYARD: La Rioja Alta

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.

4 /5

Vi drack 2012 med några kolleger från jobbet.
Röd med lila kanter. Starka dofter av bär. Ett vin med ganska oljig textur.
Vi tar det med kött . Jag skulle inte ha ätit kött , var inte bra.
