La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904 2011
A very special Gran Reserva Rioja from the "excellent" 2011 vintage.
904 is one of a trio of Gran Reservas made by La Rioja Alta, the other two being 890 and Vina Arana. 2011 is the last vintage to be classified as "excellent" by the Rioja Consejo Regulador making this a must-have for all Rioja and fine wine fans. A fresh and lively wine in the mouth, it is nicely balanced with polished, silky tannins and a gentle, delicate finish.
Formed by five families in the late 19th century, the La Rioja Alta S.A. winery has been among the leading producers who have helped to establish and maintain the classic standards of Rioja. Their Tempranillo-led Gran Reservas, aged for remarkably long periods in barrels from the producer’s cooperage, are some of the most sought-after wines from the region. And while they always upheld standards and tradition, La Rioja Alta S.A. never stopped experimenting and pushing for better quality, offering some of the purest, precise expressions of Tempranillo in the world.
