La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 904
Famed for its complexity & immense ageing potential, this is a wine to be snapped up immediately before it disappears into cellars around the world.
Created using 90% Tempranillo from more than 60-year-old vines, with the remainder coming from elegant Graciano. Aged for 4 years in 4-year-old barrels, it ripples with sweet cherry, prunes, plum crumble, vanilla, caramelized nuts, red pepper, balsamic, jamon, tea leaves & dried flowers. Wonderful combination of leather saddles, smoky tobacco & wood that conjures up thoughts of cowboy saloons. An intriguing wine, goes well with Sunday roasts & slow-cooked stews, followed by chocolate desserts & a cheeseboard.
