Viña Alberdi Reserva Rioja (2010)

New

Deep, ripe cherry red, with a clean, bright pink rim. Expansive nose, with dominating ripe red fruit, currants and liquorice, rounded off with sweet notes of vanilla, caramel, jam and spices. The wine is particularly well-balanced, with a smooth, elegant entry, medium body and sweet, tasty tannins. Ripe fruit, herbs, vanilla and caramel come together to mark a pleasant, agreeable finish.

    Vineyards

    100% Tempranillo from part of our Las Monjas, Bardal and Las Cuevas vineyards in Rodezno and Alto del Rey in Labastida. These estate-owned vineyards are located at an altitude of 500-600 metres above sea level, planted more than 40 years ago in chalky-clay soils..

    Winemaking and ageing

    The grapes were picked manually and gently transported to the winery in boxes and refrigerated lorries. Once in the winery, the grapes were destemmed and crushed following the bordelais model. After fermenting, the wine was aged for 2 years in American oak barrels manufactured in-house —the first year in new oak and the second in barrels averaging 3 years in age. The wine was manually racked four times by the light of a candle.
