We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on thirty bottles of this truly exceptional Rioja, from one of the biggest names in the region. Founded in 1890, Bodegas Riojanas, who helped to introduce Rioja to the world, combine traditional winemaking techniques with state of the art technology to produce the very best. With this particular vintage being the highest scoring Rioja in the Decanter awards!
2004 was classified as an excellent vintage and this wine surely is. Being aged for 36 months in second use American oak barrels and another 36 months in bottle before even being released to the market, you can expect a rich, bold wine with silky smooth tannins and enough structure to age even further! If you can stop yourself from drinking it now.
With a palate that won’t disappoint, there are red fruits mixed with vanilla and baking spice, a hint of pepper and earthy notes. Complex and elegant with a deliciously long finish.
If you are a fan of Rioja, you need to try this before it’s all gone!
