The Tempranillo (78%) comes 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: Mouth full of 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. To enjoy right now, but with a long life ahead.

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.

5/5

Reserve Red Wine from Rioja Alta with Tempranillo and Garnacha.
Intense, elegant bouquet and a long stay in the bottle that gives a long aftertaste.
