RIOJA

The principal wine region of Spain producing predominantly red wines, Rioja is centred around the regional capital of Logroño in northern Spain. Named after the Rio (river) Oja, the region is divided into 3 areas: Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. Promoted from DO to DOCA status in 1991, the permitted grape varieties are Tempranillo, Garnacha, Cariñena, Graciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malvasia and Viura. Tempranillo is the most widely planted variety, although most Riojas are now blended, often with Cariñena. Since the 1990s, most white Riojas are made almost exclusively from Viura.

TASTING NOTES

“The Viña Arana 2009 is a wine with that smooth, polished red colour typical of classic Riojas. Clean and bright in the glass, with light orange notes on the rim. Outstandingly intense nose, with light balsamic tertiary aromas of tobacco, caramel, incense and spices against a background of ripe fruit. Consistent and well-balanced in the mouth, with fine, elegant...

The nose opens with warm earthy tones. Appealing spice sits alongside dried peel notes and hightoned fruit over a hint of leather The fruit is forward, and a touch juicier than in the past, underpinned by the same spicy notes found on the nose.

TASTING NOTES

The best classic style of Garnacha and Tempranillo pulling together joyful fruit expression and serious depth. In the mouth it is amazingly complex, and unique. A benchmark Rioja blend.

TASTING NOTES

An extremely elegant reserva with an enveloping bouquet of crushed red cherries and subtle spices with just a hint of lavender. On the palate, smooth textures and bright red berry fruits are balanced by a refined mineral character which leads to a long and refreshing finish. Beautifully defined and supple, and almost Burgundian in style, this wine will...

TASTING NOTES

Very bright cherry red colour, with a medium-high robe. Fresh and clean to the nose, with hints of ripe berries (blackberries and gooseberries), roasting and tobacco. After agitating the glass, they give way to hints of walnuts, cinnamon and sweet liquorice. Direct on the palate, with a good balance between alcohol and acidity; marked tannins leave an elegant aftertaste with...
