Additional Information

The Vina Ardanza Reserva is a product of 30 year old vines at Fuenmayor, in the heart of La Rioja Alta, this Reserva has spent 3 years in used American oak barrels before finally making it into the bottle. The result is a cherry red wine, with orange notes around the outer rim, offering an intense and complex nose of mature forest fruits, with notes of tobacco, cinamon and coconut. In the mouth, it is full and nicely structured, with fine tanins and good acidity, with the traditional Rioja flavours of mature fruit, vanilla, and a hint of spice. Enjoy with game, hard cheeses and cured meats.

La Rioja Alta Winery-

In the difficult art of creating great wines, they combine the wisdom of tradition and the state of the art. In addition to the century-old winery in Haro, they have modern facilities located in Labastida where they make wine from their own grapes with the help of the most advanced technology.

Oak is at the core of the ageing process and they therefore manufacture their own barrels —which currently number about 30,000— using completely artisanal methods. With import the wood from the United States and dry it in the open air for two years. The coopers at La Rioja Alta make every barrel in the cooperage of their hundred-year-old facilities in Haro.

Every six months, they manually rack every barrel under candlelight. It is an art to enhance the development of the wine, removing sediments in a natural way and monitoring each barrel individually.

After a stay in barrels, the wines continue ageing in the bottle, where they polish their personality, rounding off and fully developing all their qualities.
