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

The head winemaker at La Rioja Alta S.A., Julio Saenz, declared this wine as a 'Selección Especial' - a title of the highest praise from winemakers, only awarded to wines and vintages that they rank among the best ever made. Ardanza has long been a wine trade favourite, offering unrivalled value for money for immediate drinking or cellaring. 2010 is only the fourth vintage of Ardanza to win the title in 77 years, alongside the legendary 1964, 1973, and 2001.

The wine is expressive, aromatic and exceptionally elegant, with traditional Rioja aromas of long ageing in oak barrels and gradual oxidation through the years in wood. The blend is 80% Tempranillo from the Rioja Alta subregion, and 20% Garnacha from Rioja Oriental, with the Garnacha being central to Ardanza's aromatics, structure and concentration. The texture is enthralling with fine and silky tannins and excellent persistence. The palate is clean and sleek yet displays vibrancy, revealing notes of great complexity in perfect harmony; spice, smoke, dried cherry, cedar, treacle, vanilla and sandalwood. The finish is long and spicy.

Food matches: Beautiful with a hearty beef stew, steak, or lamb dishes.

4 /5

Uno de los vinos tintos más reconocidos de España. Una añada muy complicada, con maduraciones irregulares donde el trabajo de seleccion de parcelas y las vendimias selectivas fueron clave para obtener un vino de una calidad excepcional un año más.

Viña Ardanza es uno de esos pocos vinos siempre listos para consumir desde su lanzamiento (no en vano permanece 7 u 8 años en bodega hasta ver el mercado), hasta décadas después si las condiciones de guarda son las aptas. Entre sus cualidades fundamentales encontramos el equilibrio, la sedosidad y la potencia de un gran emblema de los vinos riojanos. Una de las claves de su versatilidad es ser uno de los clásicos de Rioja con mayor porcentaje de garnacha en su coupage, eso si, de viñas de mas de 50 años de edad.

Corona la lista de los vinos más populares en el rango de los 20€, que puede ser maridado con asados de cordero, carnes rojas, carnes de caza mayor, guisos de pescado muy condimentados y quesos curados o ahumados. También es uno de los vinos perfectos para tomar en barbacoas con amigos.
