Characteristics of Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva


Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva
is a marvellous red wine made by Bodega La Rioja Alta in the D.O. La Rioja.
It's a blend of Tempranillo (90%) from vineyards over 40 years old situated in the towns of Briñas, Labastida and Villalba, and Graciano (10%) planted in the winery's vineyards in Briones and Rodezno.
The harvest is carried out by hand and the grapes go through a rigorous selection process.
After the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva ages for 4 years in American oak barrels made in the winery's cooperage. Every 6 months the wine is racked barrel by barrel according to the traditional method.
Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva is an excellent wine, one of the best examples of long ageing in the Rioja.

Tasting notes Rioja Alta 904 Gran Reserva

Sight: Ruby red colour with brick red edges and a medium robe. A very bright wine with fine and elegant tears tears on the glass. Nose: High intensity nasal aromas. A fresh and crispy wine with refined notes of candied fruits and a touch of liquor which appear on a balsamic and spiced background with notes of leather, coffee and minty chocolate.
Taste:
This is a structured, round wine with sweet tannins, elegantly polished during its long ageing in barrels and in the bottle. Broad after-taste which provides a soft and persistent finish.
