Archetypal Rioja – Selected by the DOCa Rioja as the best example of it’s kind – In 2014 Rioja Vega Gran Reserva 2005 was chosen by a tasting panel of 12 experts from the D.O.Ca. Rioja region to be served at all institutional events hosted by D.O.Ca. Rioja at to be held this year in Spain and abroad. The wine beat off 154 other entries to win this honour.
Less than 1650 cases of this wine were produced, we have shipped a pallet or two direct from the producer from whom we’ve garnered a goodly amount of this delicious wine.
We can’t see this hanging around for long – best grab a few bottles or indeed a case now!
The wine combines the fruit power, richness and superb length of Tempranillo produced on an excellent hillside site with mellowness, a smooth structure and wonderful complexity created through maturing in small American oak cooperage. The wine has then harmonised and gained additional complexity through extended bottle aging.
This is everything a good modern Gran Reserva Rioja should be with its fruit still lively after 9 years in the producer’s cellars.
