With 37 years maturity this offers up a wonderfully complex perfume of red cherries, leather, tobacco and minerals. The palate is seductively silky with layers and layers of redcurrants, sweet red cherries, spice and minerals, all intermingled with earthy nuances, mushroom and smoke. The finish goes on and on with beautiful balance and gentle weight. Delicious!

La Rioja Alta SA was founded in 1890 by the five families who still own the winemaking group today. It has grown over the intervening 125 years, expanding outside Haro and setting up in other Spanish wine regions such as Ribera del Duero and Rias Baixas. Yet it has never neglected its winery in Rioja. Today it owns a total of 540 hectares of vineyards. It has also managed to stay faithful to a classic style, ignoring passing fads and fashions, looking resolutely to the future and applying cutting edge innovation. It is constantly renewing itself in order to continue excelling at what it has always excelled at! It may sound simple, but it is anything but. Its oenologist, Julio Sáenz, told us that the company’s ability to produce fine wines is founded on its three cornerstones, which are: its own vineyards, its own cooperage and modern facilities, and the guiding hand of men who uphold the value of a historic family-owned property.
Note: Label condition is commensurate with almost 40 years of cellar storage
